Stoner movie icon Cheech Marin is revisiting the set of horror hero Bela Lugosi's most famous film to make a new comedy.

The CHEECH + CHONG star, who is famous for marijuana-fuelled movies like Up in Smoke, will direct SENOR DRACULA after learning all about the history of Lugosi's 1931 film DRACULA.

He tells the website, "When they made Bela Lugosi's Dracula, at night they made a Spanish version. It's good, but it's more of a backdrop to another little story I want to tell, and I'm going to direct that."
