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
The Tina Fey/Amy Poehler odd couple comedy Baby Mama took first place at the box office, raking in $18.3 million in its opening weekend.

Rounding out the top five was the adventure fantasy Nim's Island, which earned $4.5 million in its fourth week in release.

Does this stoner sequel match the laughs of Harold and Kumar's 2004 trip to White Castle? We were at last night's first screening and caught fans' first reaction.
Next week we kick off ReelzChannel's Fan*tastic Summer when we'll be at the first showing of the much-hyped superhero movie Iron Man. Posted 04.25.08 by Dack
In the tradition of Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke and Half Baked, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle found a loyal audience of stoners back in 2004. The flick didn't really catch on until DVD (guess it's hard to get stoners out to the theater) but since has become a very quotable classic of the genre.
Now the duo of Kal Penn and John Cho (and of course Neil Patrick Harris as Neil Patrick Harris) return. This time, the stakes have been upped. Instead of just searching for some tasty White Castle burgers, the duo now have to escape from Guantanamo Bay.

Perhaps the most unforgettable moment from 2004's Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle was the outrageous cameo from Neil Patrick Harris, who played a highly exaggerated version of himself in Danny Leiner's stoner comedy classic. The movie helped kick-start a career upswing for Harris, who soon afterward landed a role on the hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother; this week he revisits the part that rescued him from Doogie Howser obscurity in the much-anticipated sequel Harold & Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay.

Yes, we know Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay isn't even in theaters yet, but when we talked to writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg about their plans for its DVD release, the details were just too good to keep to ourselves.
"The DVD is crazy. Not only does it have the regular version of the movie, it has an unrated version of the movie which we actually take to heart," says Hurwitz.
"One of the best features, there's a choose-your-own-adventure type feature where at you can at different points in the movie [you can] have the characters change what they want to do," Schlossberg divulged. "One of the first ones on the DVD is when they're on the airplane in the beginning--should Kumar put the bong away? And just not do this, not smoke on the plane? And what happens if he doesn't do it, if you choose that you see them actually get to Amsterdam. We shot this movie basically of them in Amsterdam."
Added Hurwitz: "That whole feature is called 'Dude, Change the Movie.' And there are like 10 different spots in the film." Posted 04.20.08 by reelz
