The Wedding Crashers' Vince Vaughn reveals plans for epic sequel with Owen Wilson and original director

11/13/2020

VINCE Vaughn has shared news that a sequel to the iconic 2005 film Wedding Crashers could be on its way.

It's been 15 years since the film hit the big screen and saw Hollywood heavyweights Owen Wilson and co-star Vince as the disastrous dynamic duo.

Divorce lawyers and best friends John and Jeremy could be making a comeback – with original director David Dobkin on board.

Vaughn, 50, told Entertainment Tonight: "Owen and I and the director of Crashers have been talking for the first time seriously about a sequel to that movie.

"So there has been an idea that is pretty good. So we are talking about that in the early stages."

More good news for loyal fans comes as Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell are also set to make a return to the star-studded movie.

Ferrell told E! News: "Wedding Crashers 2, yeah. I think we can just say it's being written."

The funnyman added his own twist: "How about if it's just the lawyers representing everyone in divorce court?

"And just make it like a legal courtroom drama, not funny at all."

Vaughn recently told Cinema Blend: "David Dobkin had a really good idea that’s contemporary.

"I never went and made a sequel to a lot of these films at the time because it felt like we were just chasing a success.

"But what I like about where Crashers could potentially be at is that there’s something that is of this moment that feels really good…

"A lot of these comedies, even something like Wedding Crashers, you’re sort of investigating things that I think are real in our lives, but the comedy is an overcommitment to the absurd."

Rachel McAdams is also keen to work with co-stars Owen, 51, and Vince again too.


She said: "I got to work with Owen again on Midnight in Paris, so that was super fun.

"And I worked with Vince again on True Detective, now I'm just remembering it.

"But those were very different. So yeah, it'd be nice to go back and have a romp."

The former Mean Girls star revealed how much she wanted to work alongside Ferrell previously.

She said: "Will and I actually never met on that film, because he was doing a cameo… we were like ships passing.

"I was always just so wishing another opportunity would come along where we’d actually be in the same scene together."

She gushed: "I think he’s one of the funniest men on the planet.

"So I’m just a huge fan and he’s one of the loveliest men as well."


Vince's breakthrough role came in 1996's comedy-drama Swingers which attracted the attention of acclaimed director Steven Spielberg who then cast him in Jurassic Park.

While Vince is most known for his performances in romantic comedies, his recent work has seen him take a slight shift towards more serious roles like Hacksaw Ridge and Brawl in Cell Block 99.

On June 10, 2018, Vince was arrested for driving under the influence.

The Wedding Crashers actor was stopped at a routine police checkpoint in Manhattan Beach, California according, to TMZ.

The Hollywood funnyman was claimed to have been stopped at a checkpoint about 40 minutes south of Los Angeles.

Vaughn was charged with driving while intoxicated and with resisting arrest and is believed to have had a passenger in the vehicle at the time.

The original film also starred Christopher Walken, Isla Fisher, Bradley Cooper and Jane Seymour as the pair of divorce mediators crashed weddings in an attempt to meet and seduce women.
