With the director of Super Troopers...
In an interview with CelebStoner, Tommy Chong said that he and Cheech Marin are working with director Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers) on the next Cheech & Chong movie.
He said: "He's working a script right now for us. 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 two met up with Chandrasekhar thanks to Marin's manager Ben Fagen. Chong added: "They came at us with a rough idea and now they're fleshing it out and making it into a budgetable script. We could start shooting this summer."
This would be the first live-action movie with the duo since Still Smokin in 1983. Last year they were featured in Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie, based on their early 1970s comedy skits.
Chong said: "It was not done with our involvement. 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 directed, co-wrote and co-starred in Super Troopers, Club Dread and Beerfest He is a part of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe.
