While plot details (such as they are for this franchise) have been kept secret, director Todd Phillips recently teased the driving force behind "The Hangover Part III" and how it ties into the first movie. "It's very much all one big story of [how that moment when] Alan buys drugs from Black Doug in the first movie basically fucked their lives up for six years," he told THR. But it would appear that the Dougs have once again been potentially mixed up.

Considering the sheer number of sequels, remakes, and reboots Hollywood has made over the years, a reboot of the “Vacation” movies seems like the biggest no-brainer. No one is going to forget the original films, and yet the concept is so broad that it can easily be remade to fit our modern times. And while he has yet to really prove that he can carry a film on his own, the casting of Ed Helms as Clark Griswold makes a lot of sense. Add Christina Applegate as Clark’s wife, Ellen, and you got yourself a new “Vacation” series. This should be a slam dunk, right? Well…

Hangover III
Phil, Alan and Stu. We partied with them in Las Vegas, got wasted with them in Thailand, and now it's all coming back home with "The Hangover Part III," a movie in which they want to burn the gambling mecca where they started their journey to the ground. The first trailer set up the pins -- will this one knock 'em down?

" 'The Hangover Part III' is Alan's story," director Todd Phillips said late last year about the plot of the third installment of the 'Hangover' franchise. "He's going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolf Pack is all he has." And after surviving Las Vegas and Thailand together, who better to have your back? Well the new trailer for the "fitting end to this three-part opera of mayhem and bad decisions" has arrived to strap in.

So, "The Hangover Part III" is coming in about three months....where's the trailer? Or the poster? Or even one of those teaser trailers with no actual footage? Given the movie only started shooting last September, we figure Todd Phillips and co. are racing to the finish line, and the studio must be confident that audiences would probably walk up and buy tickets to this sight unseen. But until we get some kind of glimpse at the movie, here are a couple more stills.

Ed Helms, you duplicitious bastard! “I have no idea where that bubbled up,” Helms told us this spring about rumors he was going to be in New Line's reboot/spinoff/sequel to the "Vacation" franchise. “I don’t know where that came from. It’s nothing I know of.” So either the studios were listening to rumors and ran with them, he was on their wishlist, or the actor was being coy, but either way, it turns out he's going be in it anyway.

Two actors: one anchoring a quickly fading hit sitcom, and another rising through the comedic ranks. Both talented, and both headed to a very promising upcoming comedy.

While the youngsters of "Project X" filled out Warner Bros. dudes-getting-drunk-and-into-trouble niche this year to the tune of $94 million worldwide (not bad for a low budget movie with no big names attached to it), in 2013 The Wolfpack will be back to show 'em how it's done in "The Hangover Part III." And while chatter has been pretty steady ever since "The Hangover Part II" about what the final entry of the series will involve, it now seems like a clearer picture is emerging of what the movie will entail.

The future looks bright for Ed Helms. His indie turn in “Cedar Rapids” was well-received, “The Hangover Part II” followed the success of the first film and it looks like 'Part III' is a go. Helms also picked up the slack on “The Office” following the departure of Steve Carell to very positive responses. Now Helms steps out of his comfort zone just a tad to portray the not-terribly-likable Pat in the Duplass Brothers’ new film, “Jeff Who Lives at Home.”

The Playlist recently caught up with Ed Helms while the actor was out promoting his dramedy “Jeff Who Lives at Home” for the Duplass Brothers. In the film, Helms plays Pat, who is going through a mid-life crisis (Helms) and believes his wife (Judy Greer) is having an affair. He teams up with his brother Jeff (Jason Segel) to spy on his wife, a journey unfolds with all sorts of unintended consequences. It's another fine comic outing from Helms, and we’ll have more from the actor discussing the Duplass project later this week. For now, we hit up Helms on some upcoming project news including the recent rumors that he would be stepping into the shoes of Clark W. Griswold for a “Vacation” reboot and plot details of “The Hangover Part 3.”
