CATEGORIES Movie NewsSteve Carell is no slouch. Since leaving his breakout gig at 'The Office,' the actor has lined up about a dozen projects, has finished 'Crazy, Stupid, Love,' which is due July 29, is filming 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World' and has roles in 'Great Hope Springs' and 'Burt Wonderstone,' both in pre-production. Now, Universal has salvaged another project for him by acquiring rights to an untitled FBI wedding comedy out of turnaround from Warner Bros.
According to Variety, the studio has tapped Phil Alden Robinson ('Field of Dreams' and 'The Sum of All Fears') to write the project, and Carell will be one of the producers through his Warner-based Carousel Productions.
The logline on the project hasn't been revealed, but it's believed to fall somewhere between the 1987 Richard Dreyfuss-Emilio Estevez 'Stakeout' and the Julia Roberts-Dermot Mulroney 'My Best Friend's Wedding.' How the FBI figures in this is anyone's guess right now.
