Outside of the Wu, Method Man is reportedly going ghost in a long-awaited sequel to his 2001 How High movie.
Sources close to “How High 2” tell TMZ … the hip-hop duo wasn’t cast in the made-for-TV movie after starring in the original stoner comedy. We’re told the sequel is going to be fundamentally different from the OG version — think sativa vs. indica — because it’s for a television PG-13 audience, and weed legalization has made strides since 2001, when Meth and Red blazed their way through Harvard. Meth and Red are MIA — probably ripping a bong somewhere — but one of the original producers, Shauna Garr, is returning. (TMZ)

How High 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to the iconic and outrageous stoner comedy starring Method Man and Redman, began shooting today in Atlanta, with Grammy®-nominated artist Lil Yachty in the lead role. The follow up to the 2001 cult classic is produced by MTV and Universal 1440 Entertainment, the production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. How High 2 will premiere on MTV in 2019. How High 2 chronicles two young “potrepreneurs” on a magical hash-fueled journey to fund their on-demand munchies delivery start-up. Lil Yachty plays “Roger, an entrepreneur and the younger brother of one of the protagonists from the original film.
