Bradley Cooper Expresses Interest in Creating The Hangover 4

  • Bradley Cooper would be open to reprising his role in a fourth Hangover movie
  • The actor’s career has transitioned from comedy to more serious roles
  • Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star Is Born, was highly successful

Though Bradley Cooper’s more recent roles have moved away from comedy, he is willing to join a fourth installment of The Hangover series if given the opportunity. Cooper’s career started with small roles in comedies like Sex and the City and Wet Hot American Summer, but his role in The Hangover trilogy and a move into more serious films like American Sniper and Burnt, have elevated his career.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cooper said he would “probably do Hangover 4 in an instant” because he loves director Todd Phillips and co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms so much. However, he acknowledges Phillips may not be interested in making the movie. The Hangover series centers around a group of friends known as “the Wolfpack” who embark on wild adventures that they can’t remember the next day.

Phillips, who directed all three Hangover films, has also distanced himself from comedy, and received acclaim for his work on the movie Joker. He is set to return to the world of Joker with a sequel called Joker: Folie à Deux, which will introduce Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn. Cooper, meanwhile, successfully directed romance drama A Star Is Born and is now directing, co-writing, and starring in biopic Maestro, focusing on composer Leonard Bernstein and his relationship with his wife (played by Carey Mulligan). Cooper still enjoys working on projects of every genre, stating, “There’s nothing more fun that I’ve experienced than Maestro and A Star is Born. I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t.”
