Everyone’s favorite stripper is coming back to the big screen. While she didn’t join in the Thailand fun with the gang of The Hangover Part II, director Todd Phillips is having Heather Graham return for the last entry in the trilogy. Playing the Las Vegas pole dancer character of Jade, she had some drunken nuptials with Ed Helms‘ Stu. As we know in the latest film, the gang went to the Bangkok area for Stu’s wedding with Jame Chung, but the actress was nowhere to be seen.
There’s no telling how Graham will fit into the story here, but she’ll join Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha, as well as Mike Epps and Ken Jeong (reportedly in a large role). As expected, Phillips will also “add several well-known actors in cameo roles.” But I’d count Mel Gibson out again and hopefully they won’t be wasting Liam Neeson‘s time as well. Judging from Phillips taste, hopefully it will be something completely out of the blue and controversial. As for Graham, she’ll next be seen in my personal highly-anticipated fall festival film At Any Price from Ramin Bahrani.
The Hangover Part III hits theaters on May 24th, 2013 and one can see the first teaser artwork below.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
