Reunion Film On Hold Indefinitely

Sorry everyone, but the Cheech and Chong reunion film is on hold indefinitely. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong loved the original script, but the powers that be (the film studio) did not. The film studio, New Line Cinema, has since left the project. The original director, Larry Charles, left the project to work on an unrelated television project.
In a recent article, Tommy Chong hinted that tensions may be heating up again between he and Cheech Marin.
A revised script is or was being penned by Tommy, but Cheech only agreed to make a cameo. He character would be replaced by Pedro's son.
Any Cheech and Chong movie without both Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong would be an atrocity.
We'll provide additional updates as we receive them.
