LAS CRUCES, N.M. — Actor and comedian Cheech Marin says he and longtime comedy partner Tommy Chong may soon reunite on film.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reported Marin made the comments Friday while launching an exhibit of his art collection at the Las Cruces Museum of Art in southern New Mexico.

The 67-year-old, known as one half of “Cheech & Chong,” says there have been discussions about starting a project within the next year.

An avid collector, Marin met with artists and local high school students before the exhibit’s opening.
