Third ‘Kumar’ pic adds cast

Oswalt among those joining Cho, Penn

Amir Blumenfeld, David Burtka, Tom Lennon, Fred Melamed, Patton Oswalt, Richard Riehle and Danny Trejo have joined the cast of “Harold and Kumar 3,” starring John Cho and Kal Penn, for Mandate and New Line.

Returning cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Paula Garces, Danneel Harris, Bobby Lee and Eddie Kaye Thomas. The pic, which recently began shooting in Michigan, is being shot in 3-D and directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.

Greg Shapiro (“The Hurt Locker”) and Mandate president Nathan Kahane have returned as producers. Screenplay’s by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who together wrote the first two films and directed the second, “Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.” The duo’s also co-producing with Nicole Brown, who’s overseeing for Mandate.

The new “Harold and Kumar” comedy picks up six years after “Escape From Guantanamo Bay,” with the duo dealing with the aftermath of inadvertently burning down Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree.

“Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” grossed $18 million domestically in 2004, and “Escape” took in $38 million two years ago. Warner Bros. hasn’t set a release date for the third pic.
