'Harold & Kumar' Coming Back For Another Hit

Start rolling the joint because "Harold & Kumar" are coming back for another hit.

Variety is reporting that Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" and "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" and directed the latter, will return to write and direct a third installment for Mandate Pictures.

H & K stars John Cho and Kal Penn are expected to reprise their roles as the stoner duos. The first two films created such a cult following that it’s no surprise there is a third installment underway.

The sequel, which cost $12 million to make, earned $14.9 million it’s opening weekend before topping out at $38 million. We’re pretty sure it will do well in DVD sales as “Gauntanamo Bay” releases this Tuesday.

When Hollyscoop caught up with John Cho at the Guantanamo Bay junket we asked whether he would be apart of another sequel.

John said, “We topped the first one in every category. I think our gross out jokes are grosser and there’s more nudity and the politics we take it further and the racial stuff we take it further. So, I don’t know what we can do for the third one. I’m really at a loss. Maybe we’ll go backwards and make a cautionary morality tale from the middle ages or something."

Although the storyline is being kept under wraps, we're sure it will involve a lot of smoking and stupid comedy.
