The film will be directed by Jake Kasdan ('Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story') and written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky ('Year One').

But first, Diaz has both 'Shrek: Forever After' and Michel Gondry's 'The Green Hornet' coming out later this year. Segel, meanwhile, will star alongside Jack Black in this December's 'Gulliver's Travels' and is currently working on a Muppet movie with 'Flight of the Conchords' director James Bobin.
