The future plans of Zach Galifankis’s post-The Hangover has been unknown and under speculation for a little while now. It is fairly clear that there will be a sequel to The Hangover, but what is Zach to do besides that movie? Well we finally have an answer, it has been confirmed that Galifanakis is teaming up again with Hangover director, Todd Phillips, for the sequel and Phillips’ Due Date.
Zach Galifanakis is to star as the companion to a man who is rushing home in time for the birth of his child. There is not word on who will play the rest of the roles. The movie is to begin filming in October with a tentative release date in June 2010. It seems that work has also started for The Hangover 2; the tentative release date is for Memorial Day 2011.
There seems to be a little bit of a trend in the Todd Phillips movies; they are chasing something or trying to meet some sort of a deadline, and wackiness ensues. I am down for the theme if they are funny. There really isn’t much information about the plots or characters to make any sort of a judgment about these movies. Will they be funny? Stupid? Who knows. But, it will be interesting to see how these two movies turn out.
What do you think? Is there such a thing as too much Galifankis and Phillips?
