A follow up to 1998 stoner comedy Half Baked is on the way, although none of the original creative team are returning.
Ten points for anyone who saw this one coming. A follow up to cult 1998 stoner comedy Half Baked is in the works, and in fact, it’s wrapped filming already.
The original starred comedian Dave Chappelle in a story about four friends who start a marijuana business. A box office disappointment on release, it has since become a cult film, helped by Chappelle’s subsequent success as a stand up comic. Chappelle co-wrote the film with Neal Brennan, who also worked on his television series Chappelle’s Show.
Half Baked 2 is set to follow the son of Chappelle’s character, who must find enough money to bury his best friend, who had died after smoking the most powerful joint in the world.
Rachel True and Harland Williams are the only two cast members reprising their roles from the original, while Dexter Darden headlines the new film alongside Moses Storm, Ramona Young, Ash Santos, Joel Courtney, and David Koechner. The film also features appearances by Malcolm In The Middle star Frankie Muniz and comedian Jeff Ross
Behind the camera this time around is director Michael Tiddes, who worked from a screenplay by Justin Hires.
Half Baked 2 recently completed filming as is expected to be released next year, we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
