Most of the other movie blogs are covering the SxSW film festival in MY town (grumble grumble). Which means those lucky film fans already saw Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.
They also had the privilege of attending a Harold and Kumar panel discussion. Someone was smart enough to ask, “Will there be a Harold and Kumar 3?”
The movie’s writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg jokingly said it would be a pot-smoking Star Wars. They hinted that they have a 12-movie story arc planned, to which Neil Patrick Harris yelled, “Cha-ching!”
Then they took the question a little more serious and said they planned more ideas for a third movie. They basically ended up saying as long as someone gives them funds to create a trilogy, they’ll be on board to make it.
I’m on board too. Stoner comedies are hit or miss, but Harold and Kumar 1 was funny and 2 seems to be getting good reviews.
