The massive theft of an estimated $18 million worth of maple syrup from a storage facility in Quebec last year is set to become a Hollywood movie.
Sony Pictures has announced plans to make a film based on the theft, with comic actor Jason Segel in line to star.
Seth Gordon, whose last movie was the hit comedy Identity Thief, will direct. Family Guy writer Chris Sheridan is slated to write the script
With the US election picking up more and more steam every second, let’s not forget that there’s serious news from other parts of the world. Like how $30 million in maple syrup was stolen from Canada’s strategic maple syrup reserves, and how that could lead to some sad and dry pancakes. My heart goes out to you, Canada.
