it's going to be a very harold and kumar christmas

With the box office success of Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, it wasn't long before we heard news that there would indeed be a third installment of the stoner comedy franchise in the works. Some more details about the project last week... Next year, Harold and Kumar will be spreading the holiday cheer: It's Going To Be 'A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas'.

A title and a release date (November 5, 2010) is all we have at the moment. Warner Brothers hasn't announced anything about casting. With Kal Penn taking on his highly publicized new job at the White House, I didn't think this would be happening anytime soon. But I guess it's got the green light.

So what does this mean? Is it really possible that anyone other than John Cho and Kal Penn could play the titular stoner duo? I'd be seriously bummed. Are they going to be replaced with another Korean/Indian duo? Like replacement Bruce Lee clones? Or perhaps given the prequel treatment, with younger teen versions of Harold and Kumar? Either way, I'm curious to see what happens.
