Tommy Chong Has Been Trying To Write A Cheech & Chong Horror Movie

– Speaking to Movie Web, Tommy Chong revealed that he’s been trying to write a Cheech & Chong horror film.

Chong told Movie Web, “Every comedy team before they broke up, they always had a horror movie. Abbott and Costello Halloween. Abbott and Costello meet the monster. Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, they had one. Everybody has a horror movie. So I always wanted to do a horror movie. In fact, we did a reunion tour movie and I wanted to make that a horror movie but I didn’t have the clout that I once had with Cheech, so I couldn’t talk him into it. It’s a nice genre to play with, you can have a lot of fun with it. Like Get Out, I like that approach to it.”

Despite his efforts writing the film, he isn’t confident the film will get made, saying, “Oh, I doubt it will get made. Right now my agent and I are working on a lot of things. But mainly, I’m working on staying warm, staying comfortable and high.”

There hasn’t been a live-action Cheech & Chong film since 1984, but both continue to work. Chong recently appeared in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
