Community actor Joel McHale and Victoria Justice will appear opposite each other in the upcoming comedy flick California King.

According to Variety, the film will mash together a tale of "friendship, mattresses and a kidnapping gone terribly wrong".

It marks the feature-film directorial debut of Eli Stern, who also penned the script.

Meanwhile, the trailer for McHale's new movie Queenpins was recently released, starring The Good Place's Kristen Bell with a powerful supporting cast featuring a powerful supporting cast made up of Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Killing Eve), Paul Walter Hauser (Cruella) and Vince Vaughn (Freaky).

Inspired by real events, this outrageous comedy follows "a bored and frustrated suburban homemaker, Connie (portrayed by Bell) and her best pal JoJo (Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams, who turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar counterfeit coupon ring."

"After firing off a letter to the conglomerate behind a box of cereal gone stale, and receiving an apology along with dozens of freebies, the duo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that scams millions from mega-corporations and delivers deals to legions of fellow coupon clippers," the official synopsis explains.

California King is currently shooting, so it'll most likely hit the big screen next year.
