Also starring JK Simmons from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, Ride the Eagle will be available for digital download on October 4.
The movie – about a man trying to figure things out after finding out his estranged mother has passed away – also stars D'Arcy Carden and acting legend Susan Sarandon.
Johnson co-wrote the screenplay with director Trent O'Donnell, known for his work on the likes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Good Place.
The official synopsis for Ride the Eagle reads: "Leif (Johnson) inherits a picturesque log cabin when his estranged mother Honey (Sarandon) dies. But there is a condition; he must first complete her elaborate to-do list.
"With the help of his ex (Carden), local eccentric (Simmons), and Nora, his faithful canine companion, Leif embarks on a hilarious journey of self-discovery."
Lightbulb Film Distribution's sales and acquisitions director Peter Thompson said: "We are thrilled to be bringing Ride The Eagle to UK audiences in October. Jake Johnson plays a loveable stoner and his dog, Nora, steals every scene that she's in.
"It's a film that will make you laugh – and that's something we need more than ever!"
Johnson, who played Peter B Parker, an alternate universe Spidey in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has recently confirmed that a sequel is coming.
Confirming his return, Johnson told The Movie Dweeb: "Well, I've been working on a contract. I believe Peter B Parker is making a return.
"I haven't seen a script. All I know is that I heard nothing for the longest time and I was very sad. I really loved playing Peter B Parker. I would like to know what happens with Peter B Parker. I think the way his journey ended in the first movie was very open-ended.
"And so, when I got word that they were working on a deal and figuring it all out, I thought 'I truly can't wait to see what the writers came up with.'"
