Film will re-animate classic Cheech & Chong

Word from the trades this morning that Big Vision and Chambers Bros. have acquired the rights to the Cheech and Chong music catalog and will recycle some classic routines into a new film, Cheech and Chong's Smokin' Animated Movie. The Hollywood Reporter acquired these quotes from the duo, currently reunited and on a nationwide live tour:

"It's great to be doing a movie where Cheech and I never have to get out of bed or be on camera," Tommy Chong said.

"It's about time that we got animated because we've been doing animation without the animation for years," Cheech Marin said. "Whether you watch it smokin' a fattie or stone-cold sober, it's just plain funny."
