Ken Jeong's Mr. Chow Will Have an Expanded Role in 'Hangover: Part III'

Hangover

Presumably the script for The Hangover: Part III is done because, according to The Hollywood Reporter's sources, Ken Jeong, who plays the gangster Mr. Chow, will have an expanded role in the Warner Bros comedy.

According to reports, the third movie will take place mainly in Tijuana, with some scenes also taking place in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Part of the movie may or may not involve one of the main characters trying to escape from an insane asylum.

Las Vegas was where Phil, Stu and Alan aka “the Wolfpack” first met Mr. Chow and Tijuana has reputation for debauchery and illicit activities, so it makes sense that Jeong's character will have a larger part in the third movie. Perhaps the three will get caught up in Chow's business dealings once again.

Since Hangover: Part III is the final movie in franchise, can we expect to see a spinoff featuring Jeong's character? Warner Bros may be considering that since they will want to continue exploiting the Hangover brand.

The Hangover: Part III will shoot this September for a May 24, 2013 release.

Todd Phillips will return to direct the comedy from a script he wrote with Craig Mazin.

The previous two movies have over $1 billion combined at the world wide box office, and Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis are expected to to be given a significant raise for the final Hangover movie.
