Ed Helms is attached to star in and produce the comedy Epic Fail for Lionsgate, based on an original idea he developed with Nicky Weinstock.

The story centers on an elite but incredibly unorthodox unit of Navy SEALS who enlist the help of a badass soldier dubbed The Walrus on a desperate mission to save the United States. No details were given for Ed Helms' character.

Mike Arnold and Chris Poole are writing the screenplay based off the original pitch. Ed Helms will produce the comedy alongside Nicky Weinstock and Michael Falbo, with Whitney Thomas serving as executive producer. No production schedule was given.

Ed Helms most recently starred in We're the Millers, and he will next be seen in Stretch. Mike Arnold and Chris Poole are best known for their screenplay The Grackle, which landed on The Black List in 2006.
