Surprisingly, one of the funniest comedies in the past few years (to me, at least) was Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. Sure, there were a bunch of stupid set pieces (the most memorable one involved Harold and Kumar riding a cheetah), but there's no denying Neil Patrick Harris' brilliant performance as, well, himself. Rumors of a sequel have been passed around the internet more times than a joint on April 20th (if you got that, then you know I've been around the block more than once), and today Production Weekly confirms the project is definitely a go.
John Cho (Harold) and Kal Penn (Kumar) have officially signed on to star in Harold and Kumar 2, with screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (who penned the first flick) set to make their directorial debut on the sequel. Now, before there was word that a sequel would find the boys traveling across Amsterdam, however we're not certain whether it will take place abroad or here in the States. PR describes the pic as a cross-country adventure that "follows the pot-smoking duo as they try to outrun authorities after being suspected as terrorists when they try to sneak a bong on board a flight to Amsterdam." So, based on that description, it seems the boys never make it to Amsterdam, right? Regardless, I'm definitely looking forward to another adventure from these two -- how about you?
