Harrison Ford joins new comedy The Miserable Adventures Of Burt Squire Aboard The Horn High Yo
Harrison Ford has signed up to take a key role in new comedy, The Miserable Adventures Of Burt Squire Aboard The Horn High Yo.
According to Deadline, Ford has signed up to work alongside The Hangover's Ed Helms in the new film, which is inspired by a true story.
The film will follow Squire, a family man who is in the midst of a midlife crisis and decides to embark on a long-distance sailing voyage.
Sadly, he then ends up shipwrecked in the Atlantic Ocean with a charming but unhinged sea captain.
Commenting on the announcement, Adam Fogelson, Chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said: “We love this story and are looking forward to working with Mickey and the team at LD and this incredible cast."
He continued: "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, and Harrison 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.”
Ben Bolea has provided the screenplay for the new movie, with a director yet to be found.
