Judah Friedlander will star in the fish-out-of-water comedy, Starship Dave for 20th Century Fox.

Eddie Murphy stars in the film, which revolves around a crew of tiny humanlike beings. The Hollywood Reporter adds in an effort to save their doomed world, they take on a perfect disguise: a vessel that looks like an ordinary, normal-size man. Friedlander will play the engineer of the crew; Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union and Ed Helms already have joined the cast.

Brian Robbins is directing; Rob Greenberg and Bill Corbett wrote the screenplay. No production schedule has been set for Starship Dave.
