After the wildly successful box office run of The Hangover, the sequel The Hangover 2 was inevitable, although it could start shooting sooner than most expected. Collider spoke with The Hangover and The Hangover 2 director Todd Phillips, who revealed the film won't be set in Mexico or Thailand, as it was earlier rumored, and he also revealed when they would start shooting. Here's an excerpt of the site's interview.

Todd Phillips: I don't know. There's a lot of rumors. There was rumor also that it was going to Mexico or something and neither are true.

When are you starting to film The Hangover 2?

Todd Phillips: November.


Todd Phillips: The 1st. That's what we're trying, but you know a lot of it has to do with Ed Helms' Office schedule and Bradley Cooper's other movies. Right now our goal is to start shooting November 1st.

We reported last week that Ed Helms's project Central Intelligence had been delayed, which would free him up to film The Hangover 2 and now it seems The Office scheduling could get in the way now.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all details about The Hangover 2 as soon as we have more information.
