Jack Black and James Marsden are set to headline an upcoming comedy titled The D-Train, says a story today at The Hollywood Reporter. The script hails from Mike White, the scribe behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre (both of which starred Black).
Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, the screenwriters behind Peyton Reed’s 2008 comedy Yes Man, are set to make their directorial debut with the indie project, which sets Black as the chairman of a high school reunion committee desperate to do whatever it takes to get his class’ most popular student to attend an upcoming 20-year reunion. That student, Marsden’s character, is now working in Los Angeles as an actor in commercials.
The trade also notes that Nat Faxon is in talks to appear and that White himself will play Black’s character’s best friend.
Produced by White’s RipCord Productions, Black’s Electric Dynamite and by Ealing Studios, The D-Train is planning to shoot in New Orleans in the immediate future.
