Exclusive Interview: John Cho on A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR CHRISTMAS and the Status of the STAR TREK Sequel

by     Posted 4 years, 292 days ago

John_Cho.jpgWhile on the set of ABC’s hit show FlashForward today, I was able to speak with John Cho about the status of A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, and what’s up with the Star Trek sequel.   The good news for fans of the Harold and Kumar series is the sequel is still moving forward and Cho said the plan is to film this June!  He said they’re currently figuring out who will direct the third installment and Neil Patrick Harris is supposed to be in it.  He said the film picks up a few years after the second film and it’s a legitimate holiday movie.  He also said the plan is to still release the film this holiday season in theaters.  Of course with Kal Penn working in Washington, it’s still not 100% the film will happen.  But he seemed very optimistic.

And regarding the Star Trek sequel, he said they’re still working on the script.  We also talked about lens flares and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch the interview or read a bullet point recap of what he told me:

    Hmmm…seriously the reason why H&K was a hit was because of the quality, timing, and chemistry of acting between Cho and Penn. They work so well together on screen it would be hard felt to replace Penn or forget about including him in the third movie. If they want fans of the series to accept another sequel than both stars HAVE to be in it. Not that I'm saying the Friday movies are in the same vein as H&K but remember when Chris Tucker didn't return to the subsequent squeals. Basically the comedy was satisfactory but without Cube and Tucker's chemistry on screen the movies that followed the first were garbage to me. If Cho and Penn aren't involved in this movie then just scrap it and move on New Line. There are bigger fish to fry, spend that scratch on making another live action TMNT movie…the technology is there (e.g. Avatar) so if both actors of not going to do H&K don't waste your time!

      umm yeah i do admit that if the same two stars werent in it the movie wouldnt be as good but herold and kumar is the funniest movie i have ever seen and i have seen alot of movies so no matter who is the christmas edition it wont be a waist of time. so you are WRONG!

    Note to Harold and Kumar, there should be lots of annoying lense flares in the next Harold and Kumar movie as an inside joke!
