‘The Hangover 2’ Is Going to Asia

There’s been a lot of speculation about where the sequel to the mega-hit The Hangover would take place. People who speculate over such things threw out the world’s top party destinations: Amsterdam, Ibiza, Omaha. But now Coming Soon has it on good authority that the sequel will take place in the capital of lady boys and ex-pat sexual predators, Thailand.

The film will be shot on location this fall, despite director Todd Phillips denying the rumor to Collider earlier this year. Some people might see Thailand as an awkward choice, considering the major political crisis that recently befell the country (including a series of violent protests as recent as April). Either way, expect legendary Muay Thai fighter Samart Payakaroon to be a shoe-in for the Mike Tyson role.
