Only Six More Shows Before the Cheech & Chong Reunion is Over. What is the future of Cheech & Chong?

As predicted, the December 18th Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal tour date in Phoenix will probably be their last.  They are still not getting along.

Cheech and Tommy have both admitted they're only doing this reunion for the money.  It's the 'felomony' tour (felony + alimony).  Tommy has legal bills from his 'Operation Pipedream' arrest fiasco and Richard 'Cheech' Marin has 2 ex-wives (Darlene Morley aka Rikki Marin & Patti Heid) and 3 children.

I'm surprised the tour lasted so long.  Tommy insisted the his wife, Shelby Chong, open up for them.  Cheech eventually figured that if Shelby was involved, Cheech's son, Joey should also be involved.  Joey would be the DJ.  Why does a comedy show have a DJ?!!!

In summary:
New movie 
Still hasn't happened.  Only legitimate offer was scrapped in 2003 when Tommy went to prison/Shelby insisted she be in the film/Larry Charles left the project to direct Borat.

Animated movie
Keeps being delayed for unknown reasons.  Tommy says he and Cheech are "quality control" for the project, but I don't know if it's related to the delay. It'll probably be released in 2011.  It will probably be released in a handful of theaters or straight to DVD.
