Like many veteran marijuana consumers, I grew up watching Cheech and Chong movies. My uncle has an unopened vinyl copy of the Cheech and Chong wedding album, which he considers to be his prized possession. I have a Chong Bong that will likely be buried alongside me in my casket when I die. There are few things that my friends, my family, and I like more than Cheech and Chong.
So it is with great excitement and joy that I post this article. It appears that Cheech and Chong are making a new movie. This confirms that Christmas does come early or late, depending on how you look at it. According to Rolling Stone:
“[Jay is] working on a script right now for us,” says Tommy Chong. “We’ve had some preliminary meetings. It looks really good. It looks really funny. It will be about us going to a festival called the Burning Joint. All sorts of shenanigans happen. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Though the pair have appeared together in various films over the years, this would mark the first official Cheech & Chong movie since their 1983 sequel Still Smokin’. Given his stoner-friendly resume, which includes Broken Lizard vehicles like Super Troopers and Beerfest, Chandrasekhar seems like an ideal match. Chong hopes the as-yet-untitled project will begin filming this summer.
Chong also emphasized that he and partner-in-crime Marin were not involved in the making of 2013’s Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie, though they did approve of the film.
This is the best news I have heard out of the marijuana entertainment world in a long, long time. I can’t wait to see the film, and I probably won’t sleep until it comes out in theaters.
