HOLLYWOOD ACTOR Bradley Cooper, star of the Hangover films, said that the third instalment of the franchise could be set in Dublin.

The Evening Herald reports that although Cooper said he didn’t want people to get ahead of themselves in planning a third film just yet, he admitted he would “definitely” consider Ireland as a location to feature in the film.

This website Obsessed With Film is running a poll of its suggested locations for the next film including Dublin, Paris, Las Vegas and Tokyo. Dublin is currently running fourth, behind Amsterdam, ‘Other’ and London.
