Method Man and Redman are passing the blunt and leaving the rotation … ’cause we’re told the rappers won’t be appearing in the “How High” sequel.
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.
Filming began last week in Atlanta and, as we reported … Lil Yachty and DC Young Fly are the franchise’s new stars.
Meth and Red are MIA — probably ripping a bong somewhere — but one of the original producers, Shauna Garr, is returning.
Don’t write off Meth and Red just yet … we’re told there’s always a chance the duo changes course and makes a cameo in the sequel, or in a potential trilogy.
One more puff wouldn’t hurt, right?
