Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Everyone’s looking for something a little different from The Hangover 3: Writer Craig Mazin and Todd Philips are hoping to abandon the formula established in the previous films, Warner Bros. is looking to cash in on the franchise, and stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are wanting to pull in even bigger paychecks.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the three leads are asking for a cool $15 million each this time around, a huge step up from the less-than-a-million they made for the first Hangover and the $5 million for the second. All three are represented by the same firm and are sticking to their guns. Insiders say the deal will happen, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering how much money these films have made for Warner Bros.
