The project was originally handled by actor, producer, and screenwriter Jason Segal (How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and writer and producer Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3). Reportedly, the film has the working title of The Billion Brick Race, though studio Warner Bros. hasn't confirmed or denied the name. Both the official title and the logline have yet to be revealed.
