Half Baked 2 is heading our way

1998’s Half Baked was the stoner comedy that starred Dave Chappelle, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams, and Guillermo Díaz. It also had a whole host of celebrity cameos and I was just the right age for it and found it hilarious and I do still quote a few of the lines to this day.

Turns out that we will now be getting a sequel. Reprising her role as “Mary Jane” from the original, Rachel True (“Half & Half,” “Harlem”) joins a new cast starring Dexter Darden (The Maze Runner, Joyful Noise), Moses Storm (“Moses Storm: White Trash,” “Everything’s Trash”), Ramona Young ( “Never Have I Ever,” Blockers,), Ash Santos (“True Story”), Joel Courtney (Super 8, The Kissing Booth), and David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, “The Office”) in the sequel, which has wrapped production in Baton Rouge. The film will also feature special appearances by Frankie Muniz, comedian Jeff Ross and original cast member Harland Williams.

Directed by Michael Tiddes (Sextuplets, Naked), the sequel follows Thurgood Jenkins’ son JR (Darden) and his best friends Miles (Storm) and Cori (Young) as they search for the money to bury their other best friend Bruce (Courtney), who died from smoking the most powerful joint in the world. The film will debut on non-theatrical platforms worldwide in 2023 from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production arm of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group.

“We are thrilled to announce the next chapter in Half Baked, with new characters and a hilarious story that is sure to satisfy followers of the original film while attracting a whole new generation of fans,” said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “The sequel features a talented young cast alongside Rachel True reprising her role as the fan-favorite ‘Mary Jane.’ We can’t wait to show audiences where the story goes from here.”

This “high”-ly anticipated comedy is written by Justin Hires (“MacGyver,” 21 Jump Street), and produced by Griff Furst (Where All Light Tends to Go, 57 Seconds).
