Jason Segel Teams Up with Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman for Adventure Comedy 


Jason Segel made us appreciate the magic of puppets in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," now he wants to take us to a grand adventure.

Segel is teaming up with Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman for "The Adventurer's Handbook." "Hot Rod" director, Akiva Schaffer, is set to helm for Universal.

Hill co-wrote the script along with Matt Spicer and Max Winkler. The story? The Hollywood Reporter is saying:

Four childhood friends who are bored with the monotony of their lives embark on a global adventure inspired by the stories of explorers detailed in Mick Conefrey's book "The Adventurer's Handbook: Life Lessons From History's Great Explorers."


Segel, Hill, and Schwartzman, in essence, are all going to play losers. Segel is a talented musician who's an alcoholic and ends up being a backup piano player; Hill stars as an engineer estranged from his family; Schwartzman is a three-time Grammy winner but is spoiled rotten!

These lovable losers will test their mettle when production begins early 2010.
