Andy Samberg And Craig Robinson To Star In Movie About Stoner Superheroes

Andy Samberg And Craig Robinson To Star In Movie About Stoner Superheroes

The stars of much sought-after super hero weed film Super High have been revealed as actors Craig Robinson, Andy Samberg and Common, with New Line Cinema beating off other contenders to land the film and start developing the project.

With the phenomenon around superhero franchises on film and TV not looking like it'll be going away anytime soon, it's perhaps no surprise that idea has been the subject of hot competition within Tinseltown.

A superhero flick with a twist, the premise for it is that you can get unique powers after smoking a 'special weed'.

The film is in early stages at the moment, with Adam Mansbach set to write the screenplay, based on a book co-written between himself and Shamier Anderson.

Mansbach's attachment is intriguing news: his debut screenplay Barry was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and an NAACP Image Award, while he is also a New York Times best-selling author.

His book Go The F*ck To Sleep made him a hot property in the literary world, with two follow-ups only furthering his credentials as an author.

Anderson, meanwhile, can count Halle Berry flick Bruised among his film credits; he's also in Spike Lee's forthcoming deep south coming of age tale Son of the South, as well as Stowaway - opposite Anna Kendrick.

Actor Robinson has some great comedy pedigree, of course, including the likes of The Office, Hot Tub Time Machine and Pineapple Express. More recently, he's appeared in a supporting role in the Craig Brewer-directed comedy-drama Dolemite Is My Name, also starring Eddie Murphy.

Samberg is still part of the hugely successful Brooklyn Nine-Nine of course, and has also recently popped up in the critically-acclaimed Palm Springs. Common's transition from a rapper to an actor has included starring opposite Keanu Reeves in John Wick: Chapter 2, as well as appearing in the likes of The Informer and The Kitchen.

With no details beyond the initial attachments - and no slated release date - it's hard to say much about how the film's likely to shape up. Weed isn't a sure-fire way to funny up a film, though, and it's worth remembering that for every Pineapple Express there's also a Mac & Devin Go To High School.
