Wedding Crashers 2: Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn Reportedly in Early Talks to Return – IGN
Wedding Crashers 2 isn’t officially in the works yet, but it sounds like some of the cast might be considering tying the knot with the prospective sequel.
According to Collider, Wedding Crashers 2 hasn’t officially been given the green light by New Line, but Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have reportedly taken a seat at the table to enter into “early discussions” to reprise their roles as divorce mediators John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, the headliners of the original 2005 rom-com, which grossed $285 million worldwide on a $40 million budget.
While no deals have been finalized yet, sources say there is a script for the sequel that has been universally well-received, and that filmmaker David Dobkin, who helmed the first movie, has already started to scout locations and venues in the event that New Line pops the question and he signs on to direct a Wedding Crashers sequel, 16 years after the first premiered in theaters.
Rumors of a sequel have been circulating for years, with Vaughn revealing in November that talks were becoming more serious. “Owen and I and the director of Crashers have been talking for the first time seriously [about] a sequel to that movie,” Vaughn told Entertainment Tonight. “So, there has been an idea that is pretty good. So, we are talking about that in the early stages.”
Hopefully, the duo will be able to “save the date” for the potential sequel before their respective calendars get booked up. Vaughn will next be seen on screen in Queenpins, a crime comedy inspired by the true story of the largest coupon counterfeit scam in US history, while Wilson will be taking to the small screen for Marvel’s Loki, which debuts on Disney+ this week.
