There are plenty of fans already anticipating the return of Kal Penn and John Cho in the holiday comedy A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas from director Todd Strauss-Schulson, who became my newest best friend after a minor scuffle on Twitter. Well, now thanks to the power of Twitter and a good friend being at the right place at the right time, we have the first set pictures (seen below) from the comedy which started filming today at a mall up in Michigan. In addition, thanks to a Twitter update from Cho, we've learned that Patton Oswalt was on set filming a small role. And another tweet confirms that it's also being shot in 3D.
To start things off, John Cho updated: "In Michigan. [Patton Oswalt] in my vicinity, holding a sketch pad, duct tape, and a reel to reel audio recorder. Eeesh." So who knows what Oswalt is doing in the film. But the comedian did post his own photo from the set saying: "People watching me get 3 dimensional." Shortly after these updates hit, I noticed that another friend of mine had posted a couple of his own photos (seen below) from the mall where filming is taking place (we don't know which one) with Christmas decorations all over the place. In addition, Strauss-Schulson took some photos on set revealing quite an in-demand Christmas gift in the film not to mention a hilarious production logo on the back of the crew's chairs (as seen above).
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas starts with the stoner duo estranged, having been away from each other for a long time. But the duo is reunited when a package, intended for Harold, arrives at their old apartment and Kumar delivers it to his house. While there, in a pot-related mishap, Kumar burns down the Christmas tree grown special by Harold's father-in-law, so the two must venture out in search of a worthy replacement. At the very earliest, we might see this comedy in theaters this holiday season, but I'd expect a 2011 holiday release to be a bit easier to meet. Either way, we'll keep you updated on A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.
