Jason Segel is set to headline a still-untitled comedy inspired by a true case of mass syrup theft. Seth Gordon (Identity Thief, Horrible Bosses) will direct from a script by Chris Sheridan ("Family Guy").

In August 2012, news broke in the Montreal Gazette that 10,000 barrels of the sweet, sticky liquid were stolen from Quebec's International Strategic Reserve. Although the case is still under investigation, many arrests have already taken place and revealed that the thieves had been smuggling the syrup across the US border to sell.

Segel, whose final season of "How I Met Your Mother" launched last night, next appears on the big screen in the Sony comedy Sex Tape, set for release on July 18, 2014.

Barry Josephson will produce alongside Gordon and Segel.
