Harold and Kumar's writers are "determined" to make a fourth film.

Jon Hurwitz - who co-wrote the 2004 original movie alongside Hayden Schlossberg - has told how the team behind the three comedy films are "dying" to produce a fourth motion picture in the series.

Hurwitz told ComicBook.com: "Well, first of all, we are dying to make another one. We've been a little bit busy lately between 'Cobra Kai' and 'Obliterated'.

"We had a dinner not long ago. About a month ago with John (Cho) and Kal (Penn)."

Hurwitz admitted it is "just a matter of time" before they make the fourth film.

He added: "We're all talking about making another one. It's really just a matter of time.

"It's figuring out when it could all fit into all of our schedules.

"It's something that we're all determined to do. We just need to find the time to do it."

The first film in the series, 'Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle', featured Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) on an adventure to a White Castle restaurant after smoking marijuana.

Last year, Penn admitted he is hopeful something can be "figured out" by 2024, when the first movie turns 20 years old.

He told the website: "Well, if it's Christmas-wise they've probably smoked a little bit, maybe eating some turkey and Brussels sprouts.

"You know, doing their thing. But they also had kids in the third one, right?

"So they're probably doing it the way that only they do.

"I hesitate even answering that question because all of us want to do a fourth movie, we just need to figure out the right timing.

"You've got the 20-year anniversary coming up, so maybe we can figure out something by then."
