D-Train centers on a Middle America high school reunion committee chairman (Black), still searching for high school acceptance, who has to do whatever it takes to get the most popular guy from high school -- now a failed actor working in commercials (Marsden) -- to show up to their 20-year reunion. Bornheimer will play Randy, a high school friend of both characters.

The indie, which is shooting in New Orleans, marks the directorial debut of Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, the writers of the 2008 Jim Carrey comedy Yes Man and co-creators, with Jonah Hill, of the short-lived cartoon Allen Gregory.

The news comes as Bornheimer is half-way through a guest arc on Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The actor, whose other film credits include She’s Out of My League, You Again and Bachelorette, is repped by CAA and Evolution.
