Harold & Kumar 3 began filming today in Michigan. I was under the impression that the film was going to be called A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, but screenwriter Jon Hurwitz tweeted the following today: “Harold & Kumar 3 has officially started shooting. That is all.” I’m not sure if he called the film that for brevity’s sake or if the project has returned to a tentative title. Either way, the real news is that filming has begun.
Also tweeting about this advent is star John Cho who reported: “In Michigan. @pattonoswalt in my vicinity, holding a sketch pad, duct tape, and a reel to reel audio recorder. Eeesh.” And in response, Oswalt tweeted: “Maybe it’s this Michigan air, but @JohnTheCho is looking huggable, chloroform-able, and bury-able.” So we’ve learned two things: 1) Patton Oswalt is in the film and that’s terrific; and 2) Everything has gone horribly wrong and if Oswalt has his way, the production is going to need to recast the role of Harold very soon. In the meantime, click here to check out Steve’s interview with Cho where the actor talks about the film. Hit the jump for a couple images from the set.
