Earlier this year, director Todd Phillips announced that there would be a third and final part to the successful franchise The Hangover. The original cast (Bradley Cooper, Zack Galafianakis and Ed Helms) will all return along with Ken Jeong who played Mr. Chou. But it looks like Mike Epps will also be joining them.
Mike played Black Doug in the first Hangover, but didn’t make an appearance in the second installment. That will change when The Hangover 3 arrives in theaters next summer. According to IndieWire.com:
Variety reports that Mike Epps will return from “The Hangover,” and it’s probably a safe guess he’ll be involved in some capacity in Ken Jeong’s newly expanded role. In case you forgot, Epps played Black Doug, the wrong man Mr. Chow brought to the exchange in the original film, who also was a puzzle piece in helping The Wolfpack find their missing friend.
Details on the script for the third movie haven’t been revealed, but it’s being reported that it will revolve around saving Zach Galifianakis’ character from a mental hospital.
Whatever the case may be, you can expect The Hangover 3 to be in theaters on May 24, 2013.
