In their first film, they have arrived at the White Castle and in the second, they have escaped from the Guantanamo Bay. Now, it looks like the two hilarious stoners, Harold and Kumar, are ready to fall into a new adventure with a third film, "Harold and Kumar 3", being picked up by Mandate Pictures.
Coming back for the third installment of the R-rated feature film project are Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg who serve as screenwriters of "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" and "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" as well as director of the latter. For this new project, the pair has been touted to once again write the script and helm the movie.
Though the plot is still kept under tight wraps, the new comedy flick will have Greg Shapiro returning as the producer. It is further explained that Mandate have approached its lead actors, John Cho and Kal Penn, to reprise their roles as the eponymous stoner duo.
"Escape from Guantanamo Bay" has been released in theaters on April 25. It debuted second to "Baby Mama" grossing $14.9 million on its first weekend screening. From then on, the movie that follows Harold and Kumar in their adventure to prove their innocences has collected as much as $38.1 million nationwide and $40.4 million worldwide.
