cheech and chong
It's been more than 30 years since they've appeared together on the big screen, and now stoner comedy duo Cheech & Chong are planning on lighting up (cinemas) again.

In an interview with Celeb Stoner, Tommy Chong revealed that he and partner Cheech Marin were working on a new Cheech & Chong concept with "Super Troopers" director Jay Chandrasekhar. The pair will star in the film, which is set at a fictional music festival.

"He's working on a script right now for us," Chong told the site of their collaboration with Chandrasekhar. "We've had some preliminary meetings. It looks really good. It looks really funny. It's about us going to a festival called the Burning Joint. All sorts of shenanigans happen. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Cheech & Chong last clouded crowded theaters together in 1983 with "Still Smokin'," though a cartoon featuring their old recordings -- "Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie" -- was released last year. Chong told Celeb Stoner that he and Marin weren't involved with the creation of that film (they just signed off on it), but will have a hand in the development of -- and starring roles in -- Chandrasekhar's flick.

"They came at us with a rough idea and now they're fleshing it out and making it into a budgetable script," Chong said. "We could start shooting this summer."
