Warner Brothers are pretty happy this week.

The main actors in their summer hit – and the highest grossing R-rated comedy in history – The Hangover have all signed back up for the sequel.  Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms will each receive $5 million and a percentage of the gross.  The director/producers, Todd Phillips will be getting $10 million.  While none of the actors made over $300,000 for the first movie, there were no sequel options in the first one’s contract; so negotiations for the sequel were pretty intense.

While this is great news for the actors involved, I would highly expect that studios will now always be including sequel clauses in movie contracts.
