Kal Penn Returning For Third “Harold & Kumar”

Kal Penn looks set to return for “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas” which kicks off production this Summer reports Deadline New York.

Penn left Hollywood to take a post in President Barack Obama’s administration as associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement – leaving his involvement in the upcoming sequel highly questionable. Now it seems he’ll return along with John Cho.

Regular scribes Hayden Schlossberg and Jon Hurwitz have penned the script and a director will be hired shortly. A Christmas 2011 release is being targeted by Warner Bros. Pictures.
