    The party's on hold for now.

    An Aussie stunt driver has been hospitalized in Thailand after a crash left him severely injured during shooting on The Hangover Part II.

    According to Australia's Daily Telegraph, the stuntman, identified as Scott McLean, remains in a coma after a Dec. 17 stunt in which he plowed his car at high speed into another vehicle in Bangkok.

    No other information on his condition is available, but the movie's distributor, Warner Bros., released a statement confirming the incident.

    "There was an accident involving a truck and a car on the second unit set of The Hangover Part II near Bangkok," the studio said.

    "A stuntman was injured during the filming of this sequence. The truck and car were both driven by stunt drivers. An ambulance immediately took the injured stuntman to the local hospital, and he has since been transported to a hospital in Bangkok where advanced care is being provided."

    The Hangover Part II reunites cast members Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms for another bachelor party misadventure, this one set in Thailand.

    Originally Mel Gibson was tapped to appear in the film, but after vehement protests from some of the crew (we're looking at you, Zach!), director Todd Phillips replaced Gibson with Liam Neeson, who will play a tattoo artist.

    Most recently, globetrotting President Bill Clinton has scored cameo in the bawdy bender, shooting a scene with Cooper.
