Imagine Rushmore mixed with Election and a fair amount of good old fashioned stoner comedies and you’re some way to envisioning the potential appeal of Adrien Brody and Michael Chiklis’ new project.

Variety reports that Brody (pictured) and Chiklis have joined the cast of High School, an indie comedy about an over-achieving valedictorian who inadvertently smokes a joint (do kids still call them ‘joints’ these days?) with the school stoner and faces a drug test. His plan to avoid detection and beat the test is to then to get the entire school stoned.

Production will start on November 8 in Detroit with Brody playing a drug dealer and Chiklis popping up as the school principal.
