FLT 420 to Amsterdam

August 20, 2007

Harold & Kumar 2 is the sequel to the cult hit Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. The film is planned for release in 2008 with John Cho and Kal Penn returning as the duo of stoners and Paula Garcés as Harold’s love interest Maria.[1]

Sources confirm the film production began the second to last week of January 2007 in Shreveport, Louisiana, and finished in March.[2][3][4]

The premise of the movie involves Kumar Patel, the Indian American protagonist of the original film, being mistaken for a ‘bomb carrying terrorist’ while the pair are trying to sneak a bong on board a plane en route to Amsterdam. They are incarcerated in a Guantanamo Bay detainment camp but manage to escape.[1]

The movie follows their adventures as fugitives from the Department of Homeland Security as they travel through Miami to Texas and ultimately find themselves in the ranch-house of President George W. Bush.[1][5][6]

New additions to the cast are comedian Jon Reep and former Daily Show correspondent Rob Corddry.[1] Others include David Krumholtz, Christopher Meloni, Ed Helms, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jack Conley, Roger Bart, Danneel Harris, Eric Winter, Neil Patrick Harris and Brandon Routh.[6]

Several celebrities, including Lil’ Kim and Snoop Dogg are rumored to be making appearances in the film as well[citation needed].

A major reason this film received the green light is because the original film grossed more than $30 million in DVD sales, almost double what it made in theaters.
