Harold and Kumar are coming back.

Mandate Pictures has greenlit a sequel to 2004’s “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” with John Cho and Kal Penn reprising their respective roles as Harold and Kumar.

Mandate’s Nathan Kahane and Greg Shapiro are producing. New Line have worldwide rights to the film.

Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg will co-direct from their script, which follows the duo on the lam after they try to sneak a marijuana-smoking implement onboard a flight to Amsterdam, and are suspected of being terrorists. Hurwitz and Schlossberg also wrote the script for the original, which grossed $18 million domestically.

Shooting is expected to start early next year in Shreveport, La.

Mandate’s Joe Drake and Carsten Lorenz are exec producing. Jim Miller and Kelli Konop are co-producing.
