Ed Helms Plans Civil War Feature

“The Office” star and “The Daily Show” correspondent Ed Helms has setup an untitled Civil War feature with Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.

Helms would play a civil war re-enacter, someone who is obsessive about historical precision. He and three other guys (two fellow re-enacters and an African-American professor of history who is protesting the event) are accidentally transported back in time and awaken in the actual civil war.

Once there, they have find there way home without altering history or permanently breaking America in half. Helms co-wrote the script with Jake Fleisher.

Vance Degeneres, Charles Hartsock and Helms’ ex-Daily Show colleague turned film star Steve Carell will produce.
