Fox Searchlight is on board The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, a project that reunites the Milk team of director Gus Van Sant and writer Dustin Lance Black, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Richard Gladstein and his Film Colony banner are attached to produce.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, based on a 1968 Tom Wolfe book, was first packaged last year after Gladstein, who had the rights, enlisted Van Sant and Black. The project was then hunting for a financier.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test is Wolfe's account of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" author Ken Kesey and a group dubbed the Merry Pranksters as they drive across the country in a DayGlo-painted school bus dubbed Furthur, reaching personal and collective revelations through the use of LSD and other psychedelic drugs.

No production date has been set.
