New Orleans' filmmaking Duplass brothers are preparing for a six-week New Orleans shoot on the Paramount-backed comedy "Jeff Who Lives at Home," with comic actors Jason Segel and Ed Helms.

Jay Duplass tells The Times-Picayune that he and his brother Mark have a couple other names attached to the film they can't yet announce.

Segel, of "How I Met Your Mother" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," will play the title role in what the brothers describe as an "epically small adventure through the suburbs."

Helms, who has been in "The Office" and "The Hangover," will play Jeff's "curmudgeonly, ornery older brother Pat."

The Duplasses are Jesuit High School graduates from Metairie.

No release date has been set for "Jeff Who Lives at Home."

The Duplasses are looking toward a release in spring 2011.
