Risky Business reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has acquired Missing Links, a golf comedy based on a novel from ESPN’s Rick Reilly, with Steve Carell loosely attached to star as a golfer angling for a better place to play.
Carell will produce via his Carousel Productions, while the company’s Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock are on board as executive producers. Bobby Cohen (Revolutionary Road) is also producing.
The Break-Up screenwriter Jay Lavender is penning the screenplay.
