CHEECH & CHONG Are Making a New Movie
Tommy Chong has revealed that he and his longtime comedy partner Cheech Marin are teaming up with director Jay Chandrasekhar for another Cheech & Chong movie! Chandrasekhar is part of the Broken Lizard comedy team and has directed the films Super Troopers and Beerfest. While talking to celebstoner.com, Chong had this to say,
"He's working a script right now for us. We've had some preliminary meetings. It looks really good. It looks really funny. It will be about us going to a festival called the Burning Joint. All sorts of shenanigans happen. It's going to be a lot of fun."
The last movie Cheech & Chong made together was 1983's Still Smokin. There was also 2013's Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie, but the two stars were not actually involved.
Chandrasekhar seems like the perfect guy to bring these two guys back to the big screen. It's been years since I've seen those original comedies, and I think it's time I watch them again because I only have very vague memories of them.
