Jason Segel, star of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall,’ and ‘I Love You Man,’ has signed on to star in ‘The Adventurer’s Handbook.’
It follows childhood friends who are tired of their everyday boring lives that set out on a adventure around the world, inspired by Mick Conefrey’s book “The Adventurer’s Handbook: Life Lessons From History’s Great Explorers.”
Segel plays a musician who becomes a alcoholic backup piano player. Jonah Hills stars as an engineer, and Jason Schwartzman as a spoiled 3-time Grammy award winner.
The film is being produced at Universal, and directed by Akiva Schaffer. I’m a big fan of both Jonah Hill and Jason Segel, and the premise for this one sounds like it definitely has a lot of potential.
