Now Playing Magazine sat down with director Danny Leiner ("Dude, Where’s My Car?," "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle") to discuss the possibility of sequels: "I think the ship has sailed [on a Dude sequel]," he says. "For whatever reason, it took the studio a while to go for that."
He goes on to explain that Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher probably have their sights set on other projects (and are undoubtedly a lot pricier to hire these days), but that ‘Harold and Kumar Go to Amsterdam’ will be green-lit based on the original’s DVD sales: "…I think it’s going to depend on how the DVDs sell. If they become a big seller – as I’m hoping they will because I know there’s a lot of fans of the movie out there, and hopefully they’ll tell their friends and that kind of thing – maybe it will take off like an "Office Space" or a DVD like that. I actually think we have a good shot. We’ll know over the next couple of months, into February and March. Plus, I want to go to Amsterdam!"
