Bradley Cooper directs and stars in "Maestro" 0:59

(CNN) -- For devotees of "The Hangover" film franchise, there's good news and bad news.

Bradley Cooper recently visited the "New Yorker Radio Hour" show, during which he shared his feelings about whether he'd be interested in making a fourth installment of the popular Todd Phillips-directed film series about a group of friends who are still having to deal with the aftermath after an extremely wild night of partying.

"I'd probably do 'The Hangover IV' in an instant," Cooper said on the podcast. He added, "Just because I love Todd [Phillips], I love Zach [Galifianakis], I love Ed [Helms] so much, I probably would."

Galifianakis and Helms were Cooper's co-stars on "The Hangover" in 2009 along with two sequels, in 2011 and 2013. Popular comedies also starred Justin Bartha and Ken Jeong.

However, while Cooper would be willing to make a fourth installment, he was quick to add on the podcast that fans shouldn't get their hopes up.


"I don't think Todd is ever going to do it," Cooper said, referring to Oscar-nominated director Phillips, who is currently nearing wrap up his next project "Joker: Folie à Deux."

Cooper himself is a decorated director, as well as an actor. He currently stars in the new biopic "Maestro," which he also directed, about the life of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein.
