MTV is joining forces with Universal 1440 Entertainment to create a sequel to the “stoner classic” feature film “How High,” Nellie Andreeva reports in an exclusive on Deadline.
“In the update, written by Artie Johann and Shawn Ries (‘Family Guy’), two young but business-savvy stoners embark on a pot-filled odyssey through Atlanta to find their missing weed, only to uncover a vast government conspiracy,” Andreeva writes. The report notes that Universal 1440 Entertainment will act as the studio on the film, which is scheduled to shoot in Atlanta in late summer.
The original 2001 comedy starred Method Man and Redman.
“Shauna Garr, who was a producer on the original movie, is executive producing. Executives in charge of production at MTV are Morgana Rosenberg, Josh Vodnoy and Jason Goldberg,” the story reports.
