Jason Segel and John Michael Higgins are heading back to school for Bad Teachers.
The script, by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, follows a foul-mouthed, gold-digging seventh-grade teacher who, after being dumped by her current boyfriend, sets her sights on a colleague who is dating the school’s model teacher.
Segel plays not the model teacher, who is not yet cast, but rather the gym teacher. Higgins plays the principal, a man named Wally Snur.
The pair will join a cast which already includes Cameron Diaz and Lucy Punch. Jake Kasdan is directing for Columbia.
