Cumming Signs Up For Reefer Madness Adaptation

Scottish actor ALAN CUMMING has signed up to star in a movie adaptation of hit New York musical REEFER MADNESS.

The X-MEN star will appear as an anti-marijuana authority figure, alongside STEVEN WEBER's drug pusher and NEVE CAMPBELL's character, who owns a swing hot-spot where locals indulge in the drug.

The SCREAM beauty's brother CHRISTIAN CAMPBELL will also appear in the SHOWTIME movie. In addition, JOHN KASSIR and ROBERT TORTI will reprise their stage roles in the film.

The film version of the show, based on the 1936 anti-marijuana propaganda film, is described as a cross between cult musicals GREASE and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

Production is scheduled to begin in April (04).
