Alicia Silverstone is returning to her roots in new high school comedy.

Alicia Silverstone

She is set to join Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, Isn’t it Romantic) who is starring in the film titled Senior Year, as well as Justin Hartley (This is Us), Angourie Rice (Mare of Easttown), Sam Richardson (Veep), Zoë Chao (Love Life), Mary Holland (Happiest Season), and Chris Parnell (SNL). Alex Hardcastle (Parks and Recreation, The Mindy Project) is on board to direct from a script by Brandon Scott Jones, based on a spec from Andrew Knauer and Arthur Pielli.

The story follows a cheerleader who wakes up after a 20-year coma and returns to high school to try to regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her.

This is a solid cast for a comedy film and it’s certainly great to see Silverstone making a return to Hollywood. She is also set to lend her voice in the upcoming Kevin Smith animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
