'Hangover' Stars To Earn $15 Million Each For Third Film

Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms are set to earn nearly $15 million each to reprise their 'Hangover' roles.

That would be a massive pay increase for the trio who took home $1 million each for the wildly successful first film and $5 each for the sequel, not including bonuses.

The first film, which had a production budget of just around $35 million, earned $465 million worldwide while the second one grossed upwards of $580 million.

All three principal cast members are said to be negotiating together to maximize their payday but let's hope Warner Bros. has money left over to hire some writers this time around.

The next film will reportedly be set in Los Angeles and stray from the film's now predicable formula.

Zach Galifianakis previously suggested that the third film should follow his character "escaping from a mental institution with help from the wolfpack."

Once the cast is officially in place, the studio hopes to begin filming this summer for a Memorial day release next year.
