'How I Met Your Mother' star, Jason Segel, has been cast to star in Seth Gordon’s (‘Identity Thief’) upcoming adaptation of a story that, although true, couldn’t sound more fantastical.

Last year, more than $20 million (2.7 million kilograms) in Canadian maple syrup was stolen from a warehouse in Quebec. Considered by officials to be a high-profile heist, more than 20 people were arrested in association with the crime, with the last only a week ago.

Sony Pictures acquired the project that is being bitched as a dramedy, based upon reporting by Montreal Gazette journalist, Anne Sutherland.

‘Family Guy’ writer, Chris Sheridan, is attached to write the screenplay, while Segel, Gordon, and Barry Josephson will produce.
