The Hangover Part III is coming full circle, bringing the franchise back to Las Vegas for the third and (allegedly) final installment. Today, we have word via Variety that Heather Graham will reprise her role as Jade from The Hangover.
The actress didn’t appear in last summer’s The Hangover Part II, which took the action to Thailand. However the return of Graham sets up some potential fireworks, since Stu (Ed Helms) got married to Jade during The Hangover, and the sequel was set around Stu’s wedding with his new fiancée Lauren (Jamie Chung). It isn’t known yet if Jamie Chung will be back as Stu’s current wife.
No specific plot details have been released for this final sequel, except that the Wolf Pack (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis) is going back to Vegas. Mike Epps will also return as Black Doug from the first installment, while franchise regulars Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong are also back. Todd Phillips is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Craig Mazin. Filming is scheduled to begin this autumn.
