As we know, Isla Fisher spilled the beans on Today with no real backing or details other than claiming that Vince Vaughn told her it was happening. But now that things have shaken out a bit, Variety is reporting that “New Line [Cinema] hasn’t made deals for the sequel with stars Vaughn, Wilson, Fisher Rachel McAdams, Bradley Cooper or Will Ferrell, nor with director David Dobkin.”
The good news, though? New Line is in the early development stages for a sequel and have actually discussed with Evan Susser and Van Robichaux regarding writing a script. The duo wrote Fist Fight which has yet to come out, so the script could go one of two ways: it could cause you to kick the seat in front of you in the theater out of belly-hurting laughter, or it could fucking suck.
Per a 2014 Quora post by the Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, he explained why there wasn’t a sequel in the first place but also shed some light on a storyline that is entirely possible we’ll see in the future should this actually come to fruition.
“Wedding Crashers came out at a time when people weren’t doing lots of sequels. We did come up with a great take. Vince, Owen and myself sat around at Owen’s house one day and broke the story. It was really really funny. We wanted Daniel Craig to be the ultimate wedding crasher, with his sexy body and his speedo, and the two guys would be incredibly threatened by him. He was like the next generation terminator of wedding crashing.”
If there’s one thing this sequel officially needs, it’s alpha male and former James Bond legend Daniel Craig forcing John and Jeremy to raise their game. The only issue I see with this is that these two ended the first movie tied down, and I might be speaking for the minority here, but I wouldn’t hate seeing Isla Fisher in the sequel because she’s aging better than a Bourdeaux that my rich friend brought over to my house for a dinner party. If you don’t believe me, watch this HBO interview she recently did. Yeah, now you’re all of the sudden into Gloria’s entire crazy redhead schtick, aren’t you?
I don’t know, though, considering Daniel Craig’s salary for Bond movies was literally half of the Wedding Crashers original budget, I don’t think this’ll happen. It’ll probably be a fucking Hemsworth or something. .
