Many who watched the 2011 documentary The Other F Word thought its premise was almost like the set-up for a Hollywood comedy. Jason Segel must have though the same as Variety reports he’s teamed up with co-writer and executive producer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) and sold a pitch to Fox to turn the documentary into a movie comedy.
Andrea Blaugrund directed the original documentary, which follows a group of aging punk rockers, who have to temper their anti-authoritarian tendencies as they transition into parenthood. Jason Segel will star as one such dad.
While the documentary featured plenty of high profile rockers, including Art Alexakis, Flea, and Lars Frederiksen, it is unclear if they will return for cameos, it is likely.
