It also appears that the original creative team, and other members of the cast, are set to return as well.
The news comes from a newly revealed production listing. It states that Wilson, Vaughn, Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams are on board to return for Wedding Crashers 2.

Additionally, original director David Dobkin will also be back in the saddle. Evan Susser (Fist Fight, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is said to have penned the screenplay.
Per the listing, production is set to take place this August in Puerto Rico.
It remains unclear if Christopher Walken or Jane Seymour will return as well, though they both have expressed interest in doing so. And let us not forget Will Ferrell as Chazz, the original wedding crasher.
Plot details for the sequel currently remain under wraps. The original centered on John Beckwith and Jeremy Klein, a pair of divorce attorneys played by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. The womanizing party animals crash weddings to meet women. But John unexpectedly falls in love with a bridesmaid at a high-end wedding and things become complicated, as she is the daughter of the United States Secretary of the Treasury who also happens to be engaged.
It appears the advent of HBO Max is ultimately what is making this possible. Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, who originally produced Wedding Crashers, have been funneling an awful lot of projects to the streaming service as it looks to compete with the likes of Netflix and Disney+.
There is no word yet on when Wedding Crashers 2 will be released but with filming taking place this summer, we should expect to see it sometime in mid-to-late 2022.
