Jake Kasdan to Make a SEX TAPE with Jason Segel

Bad Teacher director Jake Kasdan is in talks to re-team with Jason Segel for the high-concept comedy Sex Tape.  Per Variety, Segel will star “as half of a happily married couple who use a night off from their parental duties to spice up their love life by making a sex tape. When they awake the following morning, they discover the tape has gone missing, prompting them to figure out who took it and how to get it back.”  Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) was previously attached to direct, but dropped out due to scheduling issues.  Last October, Reese Witherspoon, Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Rose Byrne, and Jennifer Garner were in the mix to play the female lead, but there’s currently no word on which actresses (if any) are still circling the role.

Sony Pictures paid in the low seven figures for Kate Angelo‘s script, but the success of Bad Teacher likely helped Kasdan into the director’s seat for such a high-priority project.  I’ve enjoyed all of Kasdan’s films (Walk Hard is downright brilliant), and his participation along with Segel definitely makes Sex Tape a flick to keep on my radar, although I’m curious to see who will be cast as the female lead.
