Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg have been set to star in James Ponsoldt's upcoming adaptation The End of the Tour.

Based on a book by David Lipsky entitled Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace, the film will tell the story of a five-day road trip that took place at the tail end of David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" tour. The author committed suicide on September 12, 2008.

Jason Segel will portray the late David Foster Wallace with Jesse Eisenberg taking on the role of the Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky.

James Ponsoldt is directing from a script by Donald Margulies. Anonymous Content's Matt DeRoss and David Kanter are producing alongside Modern Man Films' James Dahl. Production is slated to begin early next year.
