One’s a sequel in plot only, the other’s a sequel to a movie with no plot. And while those are obviously jokes, when the writers of the original Hangover make a movie about an evening spiraling out of control and Yogi Bear gets a follow-up, well, we’d be remiss not to kid about it a little.
Here’s the news. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, writers of the original Hangover and upcoming comedy The Change-Up, have decided on their next film. They’ll co-write and direct a movie called 21 And Over which will star Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole) as a motivated kid whose two friends take him out for a wild night the day before a big interview. It’ll be distributed you Relativity Media.

The new photos show, among other things, Hough looking cute in cutoffs, Wormald looking like a slick city boy, and Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell as Ariel’s parents. Check ‘em out after the jump.

OK, there’s Dennis Quaid, playing John Lithgow’s role, but he’s been in worse. The rest of the names, each of which is sure to thrill you in different ways, after the break. Read More »
