Filming of Crazy Wedding 3 celeb comedy started

• 06.08.2020

On August 5, filming for another #BestComedyoftheYear sequel, Crazy Wedding 3, started. In the third movie of a hit franchise the authors promise even more unexpected twists, celebs and loads of high-quality Ukrainian humor!

Four years have passed since the events of the latest film. 18-year-old Zakhar has found his love and decided to get married. She is the daughter of a gypsy baron, he is the youngest son of Vasyl Seredyuk – but though Zakhar is ready for anything after the weddings of his two elder sisters, everything can go contrary to the wedding plan, especially when Seredyuk Sr’s midlife crisis has reached its peak! 

Apart from Seredyuk family, new adventures are coming for other characters in the comedy that we know: father Yevlampiy will have a diplomatic visit from Hrushevsky convent, Mother Superior herself! Colonel Popadyuk will keep working to grow the statistics of solved crimes, and energetic master of ceremonies Nazariy Zapukhlyak will have a new crush. And surely, what would a Ukrainian wedding be without Oleg Vynnyk! 

“The third part will be explosive! We promise lots of gypsy color and energy – there’ll be chases, horses, people, Gipsy van and even a Roma camp right in Vasyl’s backyard. Imagine all the diversity of Ukrainian-Roma wedding, it is exceptionally brilliant and fun, a real whirlwind of emotions and colors. I read the script with the greatest pleasure; it seems that Mykola Kutsyk and Oleksiy Prykhodko, our screenwriters, have achieved the impossible yet again – they have written a high-quality sequel which will be interesting to watch even for those who haven’t seen the first two films. I am sure that we’ll produce a positive, excellent movie!” said Yuriy Gorbunov, “crazy” producer for the film and actor playing Yabluniv MC Nazariy Zapukhlyak.

With each new film, the cast of CrazyWeddingis complemented by new supestars; the same will be true for the third part of a hit franchise. As for who exactly from Ukrainian show business will appear onscreen, the film authors promise to divulge that a bit later.   

The comedy sequel will have celebs which have already participated in the project – YuriyGorbunov, Potap, OleksiyZavgorodniy (Pozitiv), OleksiySuprun (PetroBumper), MONATIK, and OlegVynnyk.

The role of bride’s father, gypsy baron, will be played by IhorKrykunov, director, theatre and film actor, head of Roma theatre “Romance”, distinguished Ukrainian artist.

Besides, he’ll become the project’s consultant to preserve the authenticity of all Roma traditions and ritual. Right now, we are working on an authentic Roma wedding dress and a Roma van.
