If you’re a fan of the Harold and Kumar movies, you probably know Kal Penn, John Cho and the rest of the cast are currently filming the third installment, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D, in Michigan right now. As you most likely noticed from the title, the third installment is being filming in 3D (NOT post converted) and I’m sure the filmmakers are going to offer many new and innovative ways to watch smoke being inhaled and exhaled in 3D. As a big fan of the franchise, I can’t wait to see it.
Anyway, I was able to get on the phone with Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!, The State, Night at the Museum) yesterday to talk about a few of the projects he working on and of course we talked about his work in Harold and Kumar. While I knew his character was named Todd, he revealed he’s Harold’s new best friend and “the best way to describe him is he’s the anti-Kumar in every way.” He went on to say “he is a douchey, uptight white person.” He also confirmed the movie gets released Christmas of 2011 and they’re using the double Genesis camera system for the 3D.
But the best news he told me was “there’s a tremendous amount of pot in the movie and a lot of nudity.” When pressed for more…he told me they were filming naked nuns taking a shower yesterday. While we all knew there would be no shortage of weed in the film, I’m very happy to hear this isn’t going to be a soft R. For a lot more info on Harold and Kumar, hit the jump:
