DRO_MOE Tells us About The HAROLD AND KUMAR Sequel!!

Merrick here...
DRO_MOE sent in some details about the forthcoming HAROLD & KUMAR sequel. I loved HAROLD AND KUMAR GOT TO WHITE CASTLE - loved the characters & loved its vibe. And, of course, how can anyone hate on (rude, evil, and strung-out) Neal Patrick Harris?
(careful playing this at work)

Evidently, Harris is back for the sequel, along with Howard Stern regular Richard Christy. DRO_MOE sent in some details about what we can expect from the follow-up, which should release sometime next year (?) DRO_MOE's message is spoiler filled & occasionally rather detailed. So, consider this a...

HEAVY SPOILER WARNING!!!

The movie picks up where the last one left off with H&K in there apartment readying themselves for their trip to Amsterdam to track down Harold's love interest Maria. After a few quick jokes there we have them at the airport, after a little stint with security, getting onto their plane. As Kumar walks down the aisle we see him through an old lady's POV where he is wearing a turban desert clothes and has a boxcutter in his hands. After the plane takes off and most everyone including the old lady from before is sleeping we see Harold get up and use the restroom. Kumar looks around a bit then grabs his carry on and leaves to join him. Kumar enters the bathroom and pulls out a bag of weed and a paper bag full of tubes and wires and other components. Harold is all like WTF, and Kumar tells him its parts for a smokeless bong he's been working on and he had to break it down to get through security. Once built he begins to demonstrate how it works, when all of a sudden the plane hits mad turbulence throwing them both out the door and into the aisle. At this moment the old lady wakes up and sees Kumar holding what to her appears to be a bomb. She yells "TERRORIST" and out of nowhere an air marshal tackles him to the ground causing the device to break releasing the smoke. Cuasing others to yell "POISONOUS GAS". Needless to say this stunt lands our heroes in the notorious Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba where they are mistaken to be a radical Islamic and a North Korean. But this is just the beginning of their trip. After escaping from the prison H&K hitch a ride with some Cubans on a boat made from a car and head to Florida. Realizing homeland security is on their tail they decide they must make it to Texas where there is someone who can clear their name. Along the way the run into a crazy family with an inbred son, KKK, and NPH in a whorehouse. These are just a few of the exploits H&K are put through. The movie basically has the same formula of the last (H&K want to go "here" but end up on misadventure after misadventure when things go wrong) but it works. It feels like it could standalone without the other. There are next to none if not maybe one or two plays of the last film. And let me tell you this one is graphic, it will be hard for them to slide with an R rating, PG-13 is out of the question. Expect a toned down R rated version in the theaters followed by and extreme unrated DVD. Wow, I just said toned down R rated. Back to point, after [compromising details re: source's exposure to this project deleted by Merrick] I am now more excited than I was before for the project. Hopefully this time around it gets more promo and a wider release because this studio is sitting on a gold mine. Open the Talkbacks! DRO_MOE

    We need more stoner movies.

    If Harris is gay (he is) then...

    by The Dum Guy

    Are they going to acknowledge this (his homosexuality) in the movie?<br><br>It could work as a joke, since he was so into women in the first one.

    by Aphex Twin

    This turd will sink. Neil Patrick Harris' first (and only) overly heterosexual character was the only saving grace of the first one...besides the countless boobies that is...

    kick ass

    by frantoll

    i always wondered at the end of the first one when [details deleted by Merrick]. I guess we'll find out!

  • June 27, 2007, 10:40 p.m. CST

    i hope harris is all about cock this time

    by slappy jones

    that would be funny....

    Is The Soundtrack By The Melvins?

    by CaptDanielRoe

    And is it director by David Lynch and starring Sylvester Stallone who eliminates these two within the first twenty seconds of the film? No? Well it sounds interesting anyway, unbelievable as that is. This even makes the first movie sound interesting. I figured it for something between Dude Where's My Car and Clerks but maybe not.

    I'd like to think that NPH would hit up anything...

    by Boondock Devil

    ..with a heartbeat. Atleast the way he's portrayed in the Harold and Kumar universe. Man, Woman, or beast... does it really matter when you're all coked up and ready to go?

    The Original

    by Larry of Arabia

    Is subtly political. I hope this one is as wildly political as it sounds.

    Richard Christy!!!!

    by eggbeater

    He's the man. Maybe Sal will have a cameo and suck his dick

    "EXXXXTREEEEEEEAMMMMM!!!"

    by Boondock Devil

    Has any other movie ever gotten a group portrayed as perfectly as those cockknobbers that hang out in front of 7-11's guzzling energy drinks and kicking each other in the nuts for fun? I think not.

    Kal Penn in the closet

    by iwontwin

    Come out you coward, and put this dress on!

  • June 28, 2007, 1:39 a.m. CST

    Yeah, the first was a lot better than I expected...

    by DanielKurland

    A lot of fun, and some very good writing, like that bullet scene referenced above. Glad that Harris is back, and wonder if they'll address his extreme womanizing in the first film, in spite of his recent coming out, or if he'll just continue to "play" this character.

  • June 28, 2007, 2:55 a.m. CST

    I loved the first one

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Stupid as hell, but very, very funny. It has easily the best romantic montage sequence I've ever seen.<p>On the Neal Patrick Harris thing, I thought the joke of the first film was that we (the audience) know he's gay, and that's why it's so funny to see him playing himself but snorting coke off a woman's ass. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but that was my take. Either way, it was hilarious. Good on you, Neal Patrick Harris.

  • June 28, 2007, 3:15 a.m. CST

    I dug the first one, and I look forward to this... but

    what I really want is a Grandma's Boy sequel.

    Hunting Fur Burgers

    by MartinX

    The extremely Hetero guys are always the most gay. Overcompensation for the win. Just look at at any jock ever.

  • June 28, 2007, 4:36 a.m. CST

    Neil Patrick Harris is GAY???

    by Maniaq

    I mean.. I always said he was but never actually meant it literally! <br><br> Actually I'm glad this movie is finally going to happen because Kal Penn will FINALLY be in something he DOESN'T SUCK in - not because he can't act but because he's got a SHIT agent who can't get him good parts...

  • June 28, 2007, 4:49 a.m. CST

    C'mon.. what about The Rise of Taj?

    by Boondock Devil

    ....oh yeah. Sucked. Nevermind.

    Too Soon!

    by Kamala

    Kal Penn is in danger of become the most over-exposed young actor in film today next to Shia LaBarf. And now he singed on to be in the Short Circuit remake to be directed Tim Story. This is a madhouse! A MAD-HOUSE!

  • June 28, 2007, 6:03 a.m. CST

    Im interested

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    Loved the first. That airplane/terrorism gag is fantastic. And more NPH...yay!!!

    WTF a Short Circuit Remake

    by redfist

    When the fiik did this happen? When was this memo distroed? Directed by Tim "I can't even begin to tell a" Stoty??? tell me you are lying.

    Will Harold get to cut loose?

    by Obi_Wan_Guacamoli

    I liked John Cho's character from the American Pie series. In the dvd commentaries, the directors and writers said they wrote the film to be sort of based off of that character. But in the first movie he didn't seem to come across as that as all. John Cho can be hilarious when you let him. Just check out episodes of Off Centre the t.v. show on youtube. Hope they let him do his thing.

    It gets worse. Jonny-5 will be all CGI. The love interest will be Mandy Moore. Heard it will be light hearted and more romantic. SUPER!
