John Cusack is jumping back into the high concept comedy.  Variety reports the "High Fidelity" star has agreed to star in MGM's "Hot Tub Time Machine" for director Steve Pink ("Accepted").

Joining Cusack will be Rob Corddry, "The Office's" Craig Robinson and "Sex Drive's" Clark Duke

Co-produced by Cusack, his New Crime partner Grace Loh and Matt Moore, the comedy centers on a group of friends who journey to the ski lodge they partied at when they were teens.  When they get in a hot tub -- which happens to be a time machine (who knew?) -- they amazingly get transported back to 1987.  Soundtrack!

Cusack will be seen later this November in Roland Emmerich's disaster flick "2012."

Production begins April 20 in Vancouver.
