Universal has bought the rights to Hill's script "The Adventurer's Handbook," according to Variety. Hill will also star in the movie, about a group of friends (including Jason Schwartzman, last seen in "The Darjeeling Express") who try to follow the life lessons put forth in Mick Conefrey's 2006 self-help book "The Adventurer's Handbook: Life Lessons from History's Great Explorers."
Akiva Schaffer is in talks to direct. Shooting could begin later this year.
Hill, 25, had a role in last year's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." He'll appear with Schwartzman on screens this year in Judd Apatow's "Funny People."
