Jason Segel Knows The Other F Word
As does Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce

21 October 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Wrap

Here’s a scripting team-up we’re not sure many could have predicted: Forgetting Sarah Marshall / The Muppets co-writer / star Jason Segel and Iron Man 3 scribbler Drew Pearce have hatched a deal to adapt Andrea Blaugrund Nevin’s 2011 documentary The Other F Word into a new film for Fox.

The doc talked to aging punk rockers (including the likes of Tony Adolescent, Jim Lindberg, Joe Escalante, Flea, Lars Friedriksen and skateboard legend Tony Hawk) about how Lindberg’s life in particular changed from being a raging anti-authoritarian to taking on the biggest challenge: becoming a dad.

Nothing is known about the film’s plot, though given Segel is starring, we figure it’ll follow him as a bloke trying to figure out fatherhood for the first time as he reconciles it with his past. After all, he has some experience of screen fatherhood as Marshall in How I Met Your Mother.

Segel and Pearce are joining together (not in a literal, Human Centipede way, because that would be horrifying) to write the script and produce the movie. Segel most recently co-wrote and starred in The Five-Year Engagement and has This Is 40 coming up on February 14, followed by The End Of The World with old friends Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel.

Pearce has snagged several high-profile assignments in the wake of his gig putting words in Tony Stark's mouth, working on the new Godzilla and a third Sherlock Holmes instalment.
