News Attack: HANGOVER III Expands the Wolfpack and More

Movieby Jim Napier

In today's news attack we talk about third Hangover movie and Michael Bay's next project.

The wolfpack looks to be expanding for The Hangover III. THR reports that Ken Jeong is going to play an "expanded" role in the third film. He will once again join Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis, who have already signed on to return. Todd Phillips is once again directing the installment, set for release over Memorial Day 2013. Schedules are currently being worked out so that Jeong can shoot the film during time off from Community. The NBC show begins filming in August and overlaps slightly with Hangover III's planned fall shoot.

Jeong's Mr. Chow is one of my favorite characters aside from Galifiniakis' Alan. Who is your favorite character from these hilarious films?


THR also reports that Bay is set to produce a new thriller called Rising for Paramount. The thriller is reportedly a mix between Eagle Eye and The Usual Suspects. Platinum Dunes is producing the project baseed on a pitch from Soo Hugh (The River, The Killing).

As a fan of The Killing and The Usual Suspects, I am intrigued by this project. Which movie are you looking forward to seeing the most?
