The 78-year-old Indiana Jones star and the 46-year-old The Hangover actor will team up for a shipwreck-based comedy called The Miserable Adventures of Burt Squire Aboard the Horn High Yo, Variety reported Monday (October 19).
Here’s a plot summary: “Inspired by a true story, Burt Squire revolves around a family man — portrayed by Helms — in the midst of a midlife crisis who embarks on what he hopes will be a dream sailing vacation, but ends up shipwrecked in the Atlantic Ocean with Ford’s charming but unhinged sea captain.”
“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,” said STXfilms exec Adam Fogelson.
An actress recently opened up about how Harrison Ford fought a public battle in her defense.
