Mike Epps eyes return to ‘Hangover’ pics

Thesp in talks to play Black Doug in third installment

Having already given Ken Jeong a bigger part in the next installment of “The Hangover” franchise, Todd Phillips is now ready to bring back an old favorite from the first pic.

Mike Epps is in negotiations to reprise his role of Black Doug in “The Hangover 3” for Warner Bros.

Phillips is back to direct with original cast members Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis set to return. Legendary will co-finance the pic with WB.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. Warners plans to release the pic on May 24, 2013.

Phillips co-wrote the script with Craig Mazin. Phillips and Daniel Goldberg will produce with Legendary’s Thomas Tull exec producing.

In the original “Hangover,” Epps played the drug dealer who is mistaken for the group’s missing friend Doug and kidnapped by a gangster played by Jeong.

ICM- and Niles Kirschner-repped Epps can be seen next in Screen Gems’ “Sparkle.”
