New Cheech & Chong Movie in the Works

Tommy Chong smokes a huge bomber joint with Cheech Marin in 1978’s "Up in Smoke."

Tommy Chong tells CelebStoner that he and his comedy partner Cheech Marin are currently working with Super Troopers director Jay Chandrasekhar on the next Cheech & Chong movie.

"He's working a script right now for us," Chong explains. "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."

Jay Chandrasekhar in 2001’s "Super Troopers."

The classic stoner comedy duo hooked up with Chandrasekhar thanks to Marin's manager Ben Fagen. "They came at us with a rough idea and now they're fleshing it out and making it into a budgetable script," Chong adds. "We could start shooting this summer."

It would be the first real Cheech & Chong movie since Still Smokin in 1983.

Last year, they were featured in Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie - a fun flick based on their early '70s comedy skits. "It was not done with our involvement," Chong says. "They animated the old records. I thought for what they had it was great. We didn't have to write anything. All Cheech and I had to do was look at it and go yea or no. I liked it."

Chandrasekhar has directed, co-written and co-starred in Super Troopers, Club Dread and Beerfest, and is part of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. Cheech & Chiong and Chandrasekhar is a match made in stoner-movie heaven.
