Vince Vaughn says he and Owen Wilson are in talks to star in a ‘Wedding Crashers’ sequel.
The actor, 50, spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, saying that both he and Wilson, 51, were considering reprising their characters from the 2005 film.
“Owen and I and the director of Crashers have been talking for the first time seriously [about] a sequel to that movie,” Vaughn said. “So there has been an idea that is pretty good. So we are talking about that in the early stages.”
“They were fun movies to make,” Vaughn said while reminiscing about the film as well as Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Zoolander. “It’s always fun to make people laugh and go to work with people that are funny.”
The actor is now starring in the upcoming thriller Freaky opposite Kathryn Newton. The film follows 17-year-old Millie (Newton), an “ordinary and boring” high school girl (Newton) who switches bodies with her town’s infamous serial killer, The Blissfield Butcher (Vaughn).
Vaughn told ET it was “fun” having Newton “to kind of build each character out with,” adding the actress “came with such good ideas, we had a rehearsal period where we were kind of finding the physicality of each character so there’d be cohesiveness.”
“We just had a lot of fun kind of playing make-believe together,” he continued. “There’s a lot of physical stuff and fighting, but it was also so ridiculous.”
He added, “Like, we would be very committed in a scene and then sometimes we would start to improvise and play around with thought, so it was a roller coaster.”
In the age where straight-to-streaming has replaced many straight-to-DVD films, there’s definitely room for a ‘Wedding Crashers’ sequel. Somebody will watch it.
