Are you a big fan of maple syrup? If so, you are in luck, because it appears a brand new project is surfacing just for you. Actor Jason Segel will be portraying a maple syrup thief in an upcoming project from director Seth Gordon, known for his quirky comedies like "Horrible Bosses" and "Identity Thief".

The film will chronicle the true story of the 2012 heist of over $20 million worth of maple syrup that was stolen from Quebec's Federation of Maple Syrup Producers. Apparently that is a real federation and 20 people have been arrested who have been linked to the crime.

Gordon recently dropped out of directing the "Horrible Bosses" sequel, but when he is not busy with sweets, his next film is expected to be "One Night in Hudson", which will reunite him with Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis.

Segel has great comedic timing and a definite sparkle and charm. This role will certainly be different for him, not to mention different from anything we've ever seen before.

Chris Sheridan from "Family Guy" fame is penning the script, which is described as a comedy with dramatic undertones.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
