Some fans of the original cult classic are upset that legendary rappers Method Man and Redman are supposedly not returning for the new version. Care2 user Harlan E. even started a petition calling on MTV and director Bruce Leddy to bring back Meth and Red.
“This is a travesty and an injustice! We need your signatures to show that they need to be included in the sequel,” reads a statement on the petition website.
According to the AJC, the production is looking to hire Atlanta-area African-American men, ages 18 to 30, to play fraternity members in the TV movie. How High 2 is expected to air on MTV in 2019.
