Segal signs up for ‘Guam’ duty

Peter Segal is attached to helm Paramount and Mutual Film Co.’s comedy “Guam Goes to the Moon.”

Written by David Diamond and David Weissman, “Guam” is about a former astronaut working on a lunar simulator theme-park ride in Florida. He’s contacted by an entrepreneur from Guam who wants to hire him and his partner to help build an actual moon-bound rocket.

“Guam” is produced by Mutual’s Mark Gordon and Gary Levinsohn. The project was originally set up at 20th Century Fox, but moved to Paramount when Gordon shifted his deal to the studio in December 1995.

Segal’s directing credits include “Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult,” “Tommy Boy” and “My Fellow Americans.”

He was repped in the deal by the William Morris Agency’s John Burnham and Carol Yumkas.
