A very unlikely film is getting a sequel. The 2001 Universal comedy film How High, starring Method Man and Redman, is getting a non-theatrical movie according to Deadline.
MTV is teaming up with Universal 1440 Entertainment for this film. This film is written by Artie Johann and Shawn Ries. It will feature two young business savvy stoners who go on a pot-filled journey through Atlanta to find their missing weed. During which time they stumble and uncover a government conspiracy.
An original producer for the film, Shauna Garr, will be executive producing this film. The executives in charge of production at MTV are Morgana Rosenberg, Josh Vodnoy and Jason Goldberg. Universal 1440 Entertainment is the production entity of Universal Home Entertainment. They work on developing and producing live action and animated non theatrical projects. This film is slated to shoot in Atlanta in late summer.
How High, which was directed by Jesse Dylan and written by Dustin Lee Abraham, starred Method Man and Redman as two underachieving pot smokers named Silas and Jamal. When Silas friend passes away in a tragic bus accident, Silas uses his ashes to fertilize a batch of marijuana, which when smoked allows him to communicate with his deceased friend. With his help Silas and Jamal are able to ace their college exams which allows them to enroll at Harvard University.
