Author David Foster Wallace committed suicide five years ago. Now a film about the author's 1996 book tour for Infinite Jest is coming to the big screen starring Jason Segal.

According to Crave's /FilmThe End of the Tour is written from interview notes from journalist David Lipsky, who accompanied Wallace during part of the tour for a never-published article for Rolling Stone. Segal will play Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg will play Lipsky.

There is no release date yet announced, but we're betting copies of Wallace's work will soon be hard to find.
