Many fans of the late "Infinite Jest" author David Foster Wallace were already wary of the upcoming biopic "The End of the Tour," starring Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky.  Add Wallace's family to the list of those not looking forward to the film.  The late author's estate released a statement against the film, which is based on an unpublished 1996 Rolling Stone interview which Lipsky adapted into 2008 book "Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace."  “The David Foster Wallace Literary Trust, David’s family, and David’s longtime publisher Little, Brown, and Company wish to make it clear that they have no connection with, and neither endorse nor support, ‘The End of the Tour,'" says the statement. James Ponsoldt ("The Spectacular Now") is directing the film, which was written by Donald Margulies. James Dahl, »
