Jason Segel and Drew Pearce have sold a high profile pitch to Fox.  The duo will write and executive produce a narrative feature film adaptation of the documentary The Other F Word.  The doc, which features interviews with rock artists like Flea, Mark Hoppus, and Tim McIlrath, focuses on aging rock stars trying to balance their punk rock views with the responsibilities of fatherhood.  Segel and Pearce—the scribe behind Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3, and the upcoming Godzilla reboot—will write the script with Segel set to star in the film.

Segel is no stranger to screenwriting as he previously penned the fantastic Forgetting Sarah Marshall and co-wrote The Muppets and The Five-Year Engagement.  The actor seems a tad young to take on a father role here, but I’m inclined to believe that he and Pearce have come up with an interesting take on the premise and will be able to craft a script filled with humor and heart.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the documentary.

Here’s the trailer for The Other F Word:
