E! Online confirmed the news with Warner Bros., who said:
Unfortunately Heather won’t be in the sequel—[the] way the story unfolds doesn’t allow any room for her character to show up. I don’t want to reveal to much of the film, but once you see it you’ll understand.
The second “Hangover” returns pretty much everyone but Graham, including highly paid buds Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong. Okay, maybe not so much Jeong, though I’m sure he got a raise, but it’s probably nothing close to what the other four guys got.
Todd Phillips returns to direct “The Hangover 2”, which will take the boys to Bangkok, Thailand. Hilarity, as they say, ensues.
