Wedding Crashers Is Getting A Sequel With Original Cast Returning

The sequel to Wedding Crashers is reportedly in the works and is set to be made by HBO Max.

The 2005 comedy was directed by David Dobkin, and featured Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as the star turns, and they're all slated to return.

The information comes from industry paper Production Weekly, which reported that a project called Wedding Crashers 2 - no subterfuge or misleading working title there, then - that would feature Wilson and Vaughn, as well as Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams.

Who knows whether Will Ferrell - who had an uncredited role in the first flick - will reprise his role as Chazz or not?

The production listing that sparked all of the controversy also appears to confirm that filming for the sequel is set to begin this August in Puerto Rico, and we've also heard that Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, who have both previously worked on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, have penned the screenplay with Rob McKittrick.

Hopefully, they'll manage to get everyone back on board for this latest film, as the original featured a stellar cast.

As well as everyone we've mentioned, there were also roles for Hollywood's most terrifying man Christopher Walken, and Jane Seymour.

Obviously, we know next to nothing about what the plot for the sequel will be like, but the original saw Wilson and Vaughn play John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, two divorce lawyers who crash weddings in order to pick up women.

It'll be interesting to see how they make the sequel work for the times we live in today, anyway.

It's possible the new film will see the two protagonists find themselves single once again and in their middle age.

Wedding Crashers 2 is likely to become available for streaming rather than the traditional cinema route, which might seem strange, but is a safe play given the erratic performance of comedy sequels.

It seems as if Warner Bros and New Line, who have commissioned this film, want to try to keep up with Netflix and Disney+, and are using HBO Max as a way to get themselves noticed in the streaming world.

If it does half as well as the first one, it'll be a commercial success.

The first Wedding Crashers film took in $288 million (£204.3 million) at the global box office from a budget of $40 million (£28.4 million).

That's a decent return by anyone's standards.

Hopefully they can recreate the magic this time.

LADbible has contacted HBO Max for a comment.
