Inspired by a true story, the Burt Squire screenplay is written by Ben Bolea. The story follows a –
“family man in the midst of a midlife crisis who embarks on what he hopes would be a dream sailing vacation, but ends up shipwrecked in the Atlantic Ocean with a charming but unhinged sea captain.”
In the press release. STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said –
“We love this story and are looking forward to working with Mickey and the team at LD and this incredible cast,”
“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 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.”
Ford was last seen in the movie The Call Of The Wild as an outdoorsman traveling with a CGI dog. There are also plans for Ford to return as Indy for a sixth Indiana Jones movie, tentatively set to be released in 2022.
