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."
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.
