Grub Street reports that Jason Segel is set to star in a movie about our favorite breakfast staple, maple syrup.

Remember the crazy maple syrup heist that happened last December? Well, Chris Sheridon of Family Guy fame deemed the story movie-worthy, so he’s teamed up with director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) to bring the bizarre piece of food history to the big screen.

What’s next in food crime movie deals? A comedy about the guy who tried to rob a convenience store with hot dog tongs? Maybe a gruesome drama about the 22 tons of fake meat found in China? Let’s just stick to maple syrup, for now.
