Bradley Cooper, one of the key actors in the widely popular comedy trilogy ‘The Hangover’, has expressed his enthusiasm for participating in a potential fourth installment of the series.

According to Deadline, during an interview with The New York Radio Hour about his new Netflix film ‘Maestro’, which he directed and starred in, Cooper shared his eagerness to revisit the ‘The Hangover’ universe.

"I would probably do ‘Hangover 4’ right now," Cooper stated, highlighting his fondness for director Todd Phillips and co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms. “Just because I love Todd, I love Zach, I love Ed so much, I would probably do it.”

‘The Hangover’ film series, which concluded with ‘The Hangover Part III’ in 2013, stands as one of the biggest comedy hits of recent times, amassing a total gross of over 1.3 billion dollars.

The trilogy is known for its humorous take on post-bachelor party chaos and has garnered a significant following.

However, Cooper expressed skepticism about the likelihood of a fourth film materializing. "I don’t think Todd will ever do it," he said, referring to Todd Phillips.

Since directing the ‘The Hangover’ movies, Phillips has worked on projects like ‘War Dogs’ and the Oscar-winning blockbuster ‘Joker’. He is currently working on the sequel to ‘Joker’, titled ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’, where Joaquin Phoenix reprises his role as the titular Batman villain, and Lady Gaga joins as Harley Quinn.

While Bradley Cooper’s statement has sparked excitement among fans of the franchise, it remains uncertain whether ‘The Hangover 4’ will ever come to fruition. The blend of Cooper's passion for the project and Phillips' busy schedule leaves the possibility open yet uncertain.
