Steve Carell and Tina Fey are set to play a married couple in Date Night, a 20th Century Fox comedy to be directed by Shawn Levy, reports Variety.
Josh Klausner wrote the script, based on an idea by Levy, whose 21 Laps will produce. The story follows a couple who find their routine date night becomes much more than just dinner and a movie.
The film will begin production next year, with the exact start date predicated on matching a scheduling hiatus from Carell’s sitcom “The Office” and Fey’s “30 Rock.”
Levy, who is shooting Fox’s Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, intends the film to be his next directing assignment.
