In a press release from Mandate Pictures and New Line Cinema yesterday, the full cast list for the upcoming third installment of the “Harold & Kumar” film franchise has been announced including a few names that hadn’t yet been revealed.
Joining regulars Kal Penn, John Cho and Neil Patrick Haris are Paula Garces, Danneel Harris, Bobby Lee, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Tom Lennon, Danny Trejo, Amir Blumenfeld, David Burtka, Fred Melamed, Patton Oswalt and Richard Riehle.
A synopsis was also included: “The story picks up six years after the duo’s last adventure. After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) have replaced each other with new best friends and are preparing for their respective Christmas celebrations. When a mysterious package arrives at Kumar’s door, his attempt to deliver it to Harold’s house ends with him inadvertently burning down Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree.
With his in-laws out of the house for less than a day, Harold decides to cover his tracks rather than come clean, and reluctantly embarks on another ill-advised but hilarious journey with Kumar, taking them through New York City on Christmas Eve in search of the perfect Christmas tree.”
Todd Strauss-Schulson helms from a script by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg and the film is currently in production in Michigan.
