First, there was White Castle. Then there was Guantanamo Bay. Now Harold and Kumar are going a third location, which so far has yet to be revealed. John Cho gave a few details about the sequel to Collider.
It's called A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas. The script has been turned in — I haven't read it — but I from what I know I think we catch up a little bit later in Harold and Kumar's lives. It takes place over the holiday season and I think this could a be a legit holiday movie, which is a shocker, but...I think their intent is to honor the holiday movie style, that genre.
Cho says the are still looking for a director and he isn't sure how the scheduling will work for Kal Penn, who has accepted a position as an associate director in the White House Office of Public Liason. Still, Cho told Movieweb that they are planning to shoot the movie this summer.
That's for the summer. We're supposed to start shooting it this summer, that's the plan and if I'm not mistaken I think they want to release it this Christmas.
The sequel should see the return of Neil Patrick Harris, which pleases Cho, who couldn't stop complimenting the actor.
He really did us a favor and did that movie. I couldn't be happier for him. If we are at all connected to all the good stuff that's happening with him then I couldn't be more pleased. He deserves it so much. Doesn't he? He's just amazing. He's one of the last true entertainers. The rest of us are just actors I guess? This guy does everything. Did you know he is a magician as well? He's a magician, singer, dancer and an actor. I mean this guy can really do everything.
As for where Harold and Kumar will be going in the third movie, Cho is uncertain. "I don't know," he said. "[but] I guarantee at least a couple good times." Posted 03.18.10 by Ryan
