Ever since winning an Oscar for best original screenplay for his 2013 feature film Her, Spike Jonze has rolled out a series of head-turning shorts for big brands, and he’s done so with name stars in front of the camera. There was FKA Twigs for Apple’s HomePod, Margaret Qualley for fashion house Kenzo and, most recently, Idris Elba for Squarespace.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that he’s taking his talents to the cannabis industry, courtesy of MedMen. According to a source, Jonze was on set last week in Los Angeles shooting a short film for the leading marijuana dispensary with Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams along for the pot-focused ride.

Little is known about the short film aside from this basic plot: The project chronicles the history of cannabis in America from the pre-prohibition era through today. MedMen is often referred to as “the Apple of weed,” and the company maintains 19 licensed locations in California, New York, Nevada, Florida and Arizona, per its website.
