The Wolf Pack is back and looks like they're not quite done with their debauchery just yet! Thanks to an incredibly successful opening weekend for The Hangover: Part II (and by that we mean a worldwide gross of $200 million in just five days!), the studio is already primping for a third installment of the hilarious series.

In fact, screenwriter Craig Mazin who co-wrote the second film is already on tap to write a third Hangover, according to The Wrap (via Huffington Post). Considering the first movie made $467 million and the second has already earned nearly half of that in less than one week, Warner Brothers is getting a whole lot of bang for its buck.

Another movie in this installment though could cost them.  As Deadline reports, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms aren't under contract for a three-quel. Neither is director Todd Phillips so it looks like the studio may have to open up its wallets to snag them all.

If they all end up signing on the dotted line, the third film may be a complete departure from the past two movies. During a recent press conference Collider noted the director's explanation: "Quite honestly we really haven't talked about it as we just finished the movie two weeks ago, this is the first time we've all been together in awhile."

Todd added, "If we were to do a third one, if the audience...if the desire was there...I think we have a clear idea where that would head and it's certainly not in the same template you've seen these movies." He also alluded to another Hangover being a final hoorah for the Wolf Pack, indicating "the third would very much a finale and an ending."
