Harrison Ford and Ed Helms are confirmed to star in the comedy film that will be produced by STXfilms. The movie titled The Miserable Adventures of Burt Squire Aboard The Horn High Yo will be the actors’ first team-up project.
The casting of Harrison Ford and Ed Helms was announced today, Oct. 19, by STXfilm’ president Adam Fogelson.
Details of the comedy film
The movie is a comedy inspired by a true story about a family man that will be played by Helms. He is going through a midlife crisis, so he embarks on his dream sailing trip adventure.
However, his vacation ended up in a disaster when the ship he was on got wrecked while sailing in the Atlantic. The accident happened under the supervision of the ship’s captain that will be played by Harrison Ford.
“We love this story and are looking forward to working with Mickey and the team at LD and this incredible cast,” Deadline quoted STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson as saying in the press release. “There’s no one better than Ed Helms to play an everyday guy who gets saddled with every comedic misfortune life could throw his way.”
He went on to say, “And Harrison Ford is going to create yet another memorable and iconic character as an unhinged sea captain. Instead of a road-trip comedy, we can’t wait to see these unlikely buddies in this seafaring comedy.”
Michael Glassman will be the film’s executive producer while Ben Bolea wrote the screenplay.
Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon will produce it together with Kim Zubick, Ed Helms, and Mike Falbo of the Pacific Electric Picture Co.
