According to a report, a sequel to the hit comedy “Wedding Crashers” is now in pre-production and (at least) all four main characters will be returning
The news about the “Wedding Crashers” sequel comes from Production Weekly via Culture Crave on Twitter. Production Weekly is pretty much it sounds like. They do weekly roundups of movies and TV shows that are in production.
According to Production Weekly, the main characters from the original film will all return. Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Isla Fisher, and Rachel McAdams. Also returning is the director of the original, David Dobkin. The film starts filming in August and is being produced for HBO Max.
There’s a question mark in the title because nothing has been announced by Warner Bros or HBO Max. But Production Weekly is obviously legit. Plus, Vaughn spoke about the sequel in November on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
You can read his quote below. He was asked if there was any truth to the rumors (at the time) about the sequel-
“Yea, there is truth (to that)…the director David Dobkin came with a really good idea that was funny, that Owen (Wilson) and I both liked…we just started talking about it more seriously…it’s definitely on the road”.
