Director David Dobkin Talks Potential Sequel To ‘WEDDING CRASHERS’

When you think of some of the most well-known modern comedies, Wedding Crashers has to be one of them. Having come out in 2005, the film starred Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. The movie was directed by David Dobkin. It featured two bachelors who would purposely “crash weddings” in order to find women to have one-night stands with.

Dobkin recently revealed that he’s talked with the cast about a sequel for a long time:

“We talked about it for many, many years. Vince, Owen, and I sat down at one point early on, when they were pressuring us to come up with something. And we had a lot of fun, but we realized we were remaking the same movie again and we really didn’t want to do that.”

Dobkin continued:

“I had an idea that really stuck in my mind. Ten or more years later, all of a sudden these guys are in their mid to late 40s and they end up single — what do they do? That’s interesting to me, because I know guys in their mid to late 40s who have ended up single, whether it’s out of marriages that didn’t work out or they just didn’t find anyone to marry, and it’s a head trip for men, the idea of maybe I’m not going to be a dad, maybe I’m not going to be married. So it became a real cultural question and it yielded an interesting kind of center to the movie.”

Dobkin then added:

“We don’t feel in a rush to make the movie, we never have. I believe in sequels that are new and appropriate, and I don’t think there’s a time limit of chasing what that is. There may be one day when we can finally get it all together. I can tell you that it’s really fun to read those voices of these guys on the page again. There was a joy that I was surprised at when I read the first draft of what could have been. Or maybe one day will be, this sequel. I do think audiences would love it.”
