The best way in the world to let people know you have a new movie out is to insert in the middle of your press tour the fact that a sequel or reboot to a different movie is coming. On this morning's Today show, Isla Fisher (new movie: Nocturnal Animals) did that with Wedding Crashers 2.
"I bumped into Vince Vaughn at a party and he said that apparently we're going to be making a sequel," says the woman who nobly keeps Sacha Baron Cohen from destroying himself. "So I'm really excited to see what's happened to Gloria." Asked if it's a done deal, she replied, "Well, I don't know about that. I shouldn't really announce it on morning television. But apparently there's some talk of it, which is fun."
Wedding Crashers arrived in 2005 and starred Fisher, Vaughn, Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams, with trophy-worthy supporting performances from Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour and Ellen Albertini Dow, plus the most hateable Bradley Cooper ever. It came from director David Dobkin (The Change-Up, Fred Claus, Shanghai Knights) and writers Steve Faber and Bob Fisher (We're the Millers). Let's see who comes back for take two.
