Jason Segel and Drew Pearce are working together on The Other F Word
Here's a story I'm glad I took a chance on.
Jason Segel and IRON MAN 3 writer, Drew Pearce are working on a comedic big screen version of the documentary, THE OTHER F WORD. Segel will also star in the film.
THE OTHER F WORD is based on the book, Punk Rock Dad from longtime singer of Pennywise, Jim Lindberg. A documentary was later created and showed at SXSW. I've included the trailer for the documentary below. For those who are interested in seeing it in its entirety can now watch it on Showtime. As soon as I checked out the trailer, I looked it up and hit record.
Segel will no doubt be able to pull some great comedic stuff for this.
"What happens when a generation’s ultimate anti-authoritarians — punk rockers– become society’s ultimate authorities — dads? With a large chorus of punk rock’s leading men – Blink-182′s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath- The Other F Word follows Jim Lindberg, 20-year veteran of skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band’s anthem, ‘Fuck Authority’, to embracing his ultimately pivotal authoritarian role in mid-life, fatherhood."
