Jack Black and James Marsden to Star in D-TRAIN

Jack Black and James Marsden teaming up would initially sound like an odd couple for a comedy. That is until Marsden has proven he has comedic chops, as seen in his role in the "30 Rock" TV series and recently in "Anchorman 2". The two are now set to star in "D-Train", which was written by longtime Black collaborator Mike White.

White wrote "School of Rock" and "Nacho Libre", which starred Black, so they have certainly proven they work well on comedic projects together. In addition to producing, White will also play a role in the film.

The story is describes as follows, "D-Train centers on a Middle America high school reunion committee chairman (Black), still searching for high school acceptance, who has to do whatever it takes, including flying to Los Angeles to penetrate the world of celebrities, to get the most popular guy from high school — now a failed actor working in commercials (Marsden) — to show up to their 20-year reunion."

Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, who penned "Yes Man", are stepping behind the lens to direct this one. It certainly seems like a fun premise and I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
