You might want to leave the kids home when you head out to see this cartoon. The Hollywood Reporter says that the success of legendary comedy duo Cheech and Chong’s reunion tour, Cheech & Chong Light Up America, has sparked the idea for an animated feature film. Big Vision Entertainment and Chambers Bros Entertainment acquired the rights to the Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong library, and will use those comedy routines as inspiration for the upcoming film.
The duo hit big in the ’70s and ’80s with popular comedy albums and six films, including Up in Smoke.
"It's great to be doing a movie where Cheech and I never have to get out of bed or be on camera," Chong told The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's about time that we got animated because we've been doing animation without the animation for years," Marin said. "Whether you watch it smokin' a fattie or stone-cold sober, it's just plain funny."
Nice to know these two are still smokin' after all these years.
