Redman and Method Man Working on How High Sequel

16 years ago, Silas and Jamal entered Harvard and our hearts with their love for weed. How High is a 2001 movie that is considered a classic among all cannabis enthusiasts. And it seems that soon enough, we will see the long-awaited sequel coming to the screen.

At the end of January, the two stars of How High, Clifford Smith and Reginald Noble, who are known to us as Redman and Method Man, hit the stage at a famous night club in Vancouver—Chinatown’s Fortune Sound Club. Near the place where two other celebrities of the marijuana world—Cheech and Chong—met, Redman revealed an incredible surprise for the fans of How High.

Today, stoner movies is a separate subgenre in cinematography. The image of cannabis culture differs from movie to movie—sometimes stoners are represented in a positive way, sometimes they are shown comically.

After the performance, Redman met with a CLN correspondent. Upon having a little chat with Craig Ex, the rapper and noted cannabis consumer claimed that he would have been glad if How High 2 had been released back in 2004. The reason behind the change of plans was political and had nothing to do with the stars' enthusiasm. Fortunately, now, the cannabis status in the country has changed, and Universal is ready to open its doors.

The great news is that we can expect the sequel in a few years. The rapper mentioned that the script was already being written, and the crew planned to start shooting at the end of the year. The work is already humming along.

The statement caused great enthusiasm among fans. Despite being panned by critics, How High was rather popular with the youth and received a 79-percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This movie marked the rise of stoner comedy's popularity. It paved the way to the famous cannabis-related franchise Harold and Kumar and advanced Seth Rogen's career. Hopefully, the continuation of Silas and Jamal's adventures in Harvard will sparkle new interest towards weed comedies. Though television and cinema are now more into to a serious representation of cannabis, comedies are always a good way to attract a large audience.

In addition, Method Man and Redman are working on new material for Blackout 3 and the soundtrack to the movie.
