More on 'The Underclassman'

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Shawn Ashmore, best known as Iceman in the "X-Men" films, will star opposite Nick Cannon in Miramax Films' "The Underclassman," which begins shooting in October in Los Angeles and Vancouver.

Nickelodeon veteran Cannon plays a detective who, with his schoolboy looks, goes undercover at an elite private school and stumbles upon an international stolen-car ring led by one of his rivals at the school, played by Ashmore. The investigation gets even more surprising when the detective uncovers the person who has been using the students to steal.

Based on an idea by Cannon, "Underclassman" was written by "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" scribes David Wagner and Brent Goldberg. Marcos Siega, a TV and music video veteran, directs.
