Cheech & Chong, aka Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, are going to attempt to make a horror movie. That’s gonna be “far out man.”
Ryan Scott from MovieWeb.com shared that “During the conversation, he revealed that he’s actually not a big fan of horror, then revealed, somewhat ironically, that he’s got this project kicking around saying, ‘I’ve been trying to write a Cheech and Chong horror movie.'”
Tommy had this to say:
“Every comedy team before they broke up, they always had a horror movie. Abbott and Costello Halloween. Abbott and Costello meet the monster. Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, they had one. Everybody has a horror movie. So I always wanted to do a horror movie. In fact, we did a reunion tour movie and I wanted to make that a horror movie but I didn’t have the clout that I once had with Cheech, so I couldn’t talk him into it. It’s a nice genre to play with, you can have a lot of fun with it. Like ‘Get Out,’ I like that approach to it.”
Chong has been promoting ‘Color Out Of Space’ with Nicholas Cage, as well as continuing his weed empire with Chong’s Choice and his many endorsements.
As far as the Michigan folk reading this, everyone is anticipating that maybe there will be a surprise appearance of Tommy at Ann Arbor’s Hash Bash / Monroe Street Fair. Chong attended in 2015 and spoke to the crowd in the Diag, and has attended multiple times throughout his career. The fact that recreational is on the way (for everyone BUT Detroit it would seem), and is currently recreational in Ann Arbor, my bet is on him showing up for THAT party.
Check out his speech from the 2015 Hash Bash Event here, and be sure to check out all his hilarity on Instagram. Gotta love Tommy Chong.
