Jason Segel and Drew Pearce Team for THE OTHER F WORD

If The Other F Word sounds familiar to you, that's because it's already a movie title.

Deadline reports that Jason Segel and Drew Pearce are teaming up to bring the 2011 documentary about punk rockers who eventually become fathers (that's "the other F word" they're hinting at) to the big screen as a narrative feature. The original doc featured interviews with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as well as members of Rise Against and Blink-182, and told the rather ironic story of guys who raged against authority in their youth only to grow up and become the ultimate authority figure: a dad.

The collaboration between Segel and Pearce (who's co-writing Iron Man 3 as well as Godzilla and Sherlock Holmes 3) seems like a weird one considering their previous filmographies, but it should be interesting to see what kind of comedic situations they can mine from this material. Segel is musically talented (as evidenced by his work in The Muppets and Forgetting Sarah Marshall), but will he be believable as a former punk rocker? Time will tell.

Did you see The Other F Word? Are you looking forward to this version with these guys attached?
