No 'Hangover 4' in the works, Zach insists

Zach Galifianakis insists there won't be a 'Hangover 4'.

The actor - who reprises his role as Alan Garner in the third and final installment of the raucous comedy franchise - admits he was reluctant to film a sequel to the original 2009 film and while he has enjoyed making the two follow-ups, there won't be any more.

He told Empire magazine: "It didn't make sense at first. I'm a leave-well-enough-alone kind of person. But looking back, I'm happy we did the third one. It feels like it's wrapping up nicely, where the second didn't feel like it was. A third one felt like it gave our characters a conclusion.

"What I would love to do is, if we all make it to 90, then get back together. That would be fun. But that's not going to happen. There's not going to be a fourth one."

Director Todd Phillips is also adamant that the third flick - which also stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong - will be the last in the franchise.

He added: "There is an absolute end to it. All the loose ends are tied up."

'The Hangover Part III' sees buddies Alan (Galifianakis), Stu (Helms) and Phil (Cooper) find themselves in another wild adventure while Alan also deals with the death of his father.
