Jonah Hill Opens 'The Adventurer's Handbook'

Jonah Hill loves an adventure, at least enough to write about it and then name himself the star.

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."
