Stoner comedy High School to hit theaters in June


Coming to theaters on June 1 from Anchor Bay is the stoner comedy High School. Starring Adrien Brody, Colin Hanks, Matt Bush, Sean Marquette and Michael Chiklis, the plot is about a Principal's plans to expel any student that fails a drug test. The answer? Get everyone stoned! Brody with corn-rows and tattoos, and Chiklis almost unrecognizable as the Principal, I would say it's time to bang down a stiff Lucy.....

The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis) institutes a zero tolerance drug policy and administers a mandatory drug test for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette) to beat the system. They steal a high powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody) and spike the school’s bake sale brownies, getting the whole school—faculty included—completely stoned out of their minds. But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie, and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.

Directed by John Stalberg, Jr., with story by John Stalberg, Jr. and Eric Linthorst, and screenplay by Eric Linthorst and John Stalberg, Jr., HIGH SCHOOL also features Colin Hanks, Adhir Kalyan and Yeardley Smith
