Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman are ready to write The Adventurer's Handbook...sort of. The actors, who have honed their comedic chops in prior efforts such as Superbad and Rushmore, respectively, will star together in the comedy for Universal. Hill, who shot to fame in the past few years thanks to his status as a frequent Judd Apatow collaborator, wrote the film's script, which was inspired by Mick Conefrey's book about explorers.
Hill persuaded Akiva Schaffer to direct the project. Schaffer has previously directed episodes of Saturday Night Live, and his first feature film was 2007's Hot Rod. Start dates on the film were unavailable at perss time.
