Hold onto your hashish: 'Harold & Kumar' are coming!

The gods must be smiling on Shreveport, because the sequel to “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” is set to film here in January. Actors John Cho and Kal Penn will reprise their roles for the feature film.

“We’re excited. It’s kind of a road picture,” said line producer Lampton Enochs.

En route to Amsterdam to chase romance and obtain smokable substances illegal in the U.S., Harold and Kumar will travel through Texas, Mississippi, Miami, and Guantanamo Bay. The movie will be shot almost entirely in Shreveport.

“It’s a great project. It will definitely show off what Shreveport has to offer,” Enochs said.

I personally can't wait to see the flyers for the extras casting call: "Seeking males and females ages 18 and up to play stoners. Must be punctual." Fat chance.

The Mandate Films production is tentatively titled “Harold & Kumar Go to Amsterdam.” It will begin shooting on Jan. 22.

You must "scout" the great street sign on the corner of Highland and Stoner for them. It's time has finally come. It must be in this movie!

Ooo, that's so dude! I hope the producers read this post. You're too good. Or perhaps you might send in a photo of this crossroad wonderland and we'll make fun of it here.

Please, please God let Neil Patrick Harris also star as himself in this one. Also, filmmaking Gods, please let this sequel involve the same magical cheetah that was in the first one.

Chris, you are the second person who has mentioned that today. I'm sensing an open letter to Neil Patrick Harris in this blog's future. Hmm ... who, oh who, should write it?
