Danny Glover has agreed to star in the comedy, Be Kind, Rewind for New Line Cinema, also starring Jack Black.

The film is written and will be directed by Oscar winner Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The Hollywood Reporter says the story revolves around a man (Black) who becomes magnetized at a local power plant. He accidentally erases all the videotapes at the local video store owned by Glover's character. Instead of telling the stubborn, old-fashioned store owner what happened, Black and his friend decide to re-create the films using the townspeople as actors.

Be Kind, Rewind will begin shooting in New York in September; no release date has been set.
