    "No, you listen to me! $45 million or Zach, Ed and I walk!"

    Poor Justin Bartha--dude gets left out of everything.

    Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms are negotiation a package for "Hangover 3" that would net them each $15 million dollars, according to The Hollywood Reporter. What about Bartha, you ask? The poor guy isn't even mentioned in the piece--Warner Bros. likely just assumes that as the franchise's human MacGuffin, he's should just be happy for work.

    Jason Segel stars as Jeff, a shiftless 30-something, who ends up spending the day with his brother, played by Ed Helms, spying on his sister-in-law, whom they suspect of cheating. Co-starring Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer, written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass. Opens March 16.

    Most folks (not us) hated the second film, saying it was a carbon copy of the original. This new film reportedly takes place in L.A. and reportedly breaks with the "what happened" formula of the first two--which will probably alienate the folks who bought $1 billion worth of tickets to its predecessors.

    There's been talk that the next film will center around an effort to break Alan (Galifianakis) out of a looney bin, but it's been a while since anyone's mentioned that angle. In any event, the film should start shooting this summer and be finished in time for Memorial Day 2013.
