It was thrown our way a few months ago that we could be getting a Wedding Crashers sequel and now Vince Vaughn has revealed that he and Owen Wilson have been talking with the movie’s director.
Both actors starred in the 2005 comedy that saw best pals Jeremy Grey (played by Vaughn) and John Beckwith (Wilson) tap into their inner womanisers to, yep, you guessed it, crash weddings so they could take advantage of the free booze and hook up with girls.
It boasted a stellar cast with Isla Fisher, Rachel McAdams, Jane Seymour, Christopher Walken, Bradley Cooper and Will Ferrell all making an appearance too.
No surprises there then that it became a fan favourite and now Vaughn has confirmed that he and Wilson are in ‘serious talks’ with the film’s director David Dobkin to give us all a Wedding Crashers 2.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Vaughn said: ‘Owen and I and the director of Crashers have been talking for the first time seriously [about] a sequel to that movie.’
He teased: ‘So, there has been an idea that is pretty good. So, we are talking about that in the early stages.’
It sounds like Vaughn is more than keen to commit, with the Dodgeball star adding: ‘They were fun movies to make. It’s always fun to make people laugh and go to work with people that are funny.’
Vaughn’s comments come after Elf star Ferrell, who played Chazz Reinhold, the guy that crashed funerals instead, in the movie teased that Wedding Crashers 2 was on the cards.
‘Wedding Crashers 2, yeah. I think we can just say it’s being written,’ Ferrell told E! News in June.
He then shared this thoughts for the movie’s new plot and joked: ‘How about if it’s just the lawyers representing everyone in divorce court? And just make it like a legal courtroom drama, not funny at all.’
McAdams, who played Claire Cleary, who Wilson’s character John falls for, even threw her hat into the ring, as she revealed she’d be up for joining the cast again.
‘I got to work with Owen again on Midnight In Paris, so that was super fun, and I worked with Vince again on True Detective, now I’m just remembering it,’ she said.
‘But those were very different. So yeah, it’d be nice to go back and have a romp.’
