MTV Greenlights Sequel Of Method Man And Redman’s’How High’ Movie

The cannabis industry’s landscape has shifted in recent years. One thing that hasn’t is the requirement for some good ol’ fashioned stoner comedy. If anything, weed’s legality has opened the doors for some new comedic paths to explore.

We’re definitely not in favor of returning to the dark ages of pot prohibition, but there’s no doubt that the stigma surrounding the plant made for some pretty hilarious cult classics like Super Troopers, Dazed and Confused, and Half Baked. We’ve already seen a Super Troopers sequel come to fruition this year, but it seems like we’re going to be getting another classic stoner comedy follow-up. According to reports, MTV has officially ordered a sequel to Method Man And Redman’s ‘How High’ film.

MTV and Universal 1440 Entertainment are teaming up to continue the story of an iconic stoner flick. Longtime Family Guy writers Artie Johann and Sean Ries will be contributing to the sequel.

According to Deadline.com, the sequel will once again feature Method Man and Redman’s titular characters, as a set of “youthful but business-savvy stoners,” who unwittingly discover a enormous government cover-up while looking for their missing weed.

It’s unclear what other roles the two members of the Wu-Tang Clan will have in the job. So far, we know the film will feature one familiar face behind the scenes. Shauna Garr, a producer in the first film, will now assume executive producer responsibilities.

Redman spoke about a possible sequel in the High Times Cannabis Cup and he told MTV News that he was written a story draft years ago. However, it’s unclear if Redman’s drafts made it to the confirmed sequel.

”The How High 2, ideally we could do this under Universal, if not, we gonna do our own movie under our own shit and it is going to be heavily marijuana-related. ”

Regardless, the new movie should bring on some much-needed nostalgia for now ’s ever-expanding bud culture. The project won’t be hitting theaters but there’ll be a good deal of talent behind it. We hope there’s as much cannabis as promised in the upcoming sequel. The film will not be debuting in theaters. As of now, there’s absolutely no release date but shooting will start in Atlanta this August.
