Craig Mazin Back Onboard to Write ‘Hangover 3'

Mazin wrote Warner Bros. giant hit “Hangover 2,” which has grossed more than $200 million worldwide

It really shouldn't be a surprise, but Craig Mazin is on board to write the third "Hangover" movie.

Mazin and Scot Armstrong wrote "The Hangover Part II," the Warner Bros. comedy that grossed more than $205  million worldwide in its first five days. It's the best comedy premiere ever and Warner Bros. would love to replicate its success.

The movie was released Thursday.

He and Armstrong wrote "The Hangover Part II" based on characters by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Todd Phillips directed the 2009 "The Hangover" and this week's sequel.
