Kevin Bacon is joining Warner Bros.’ untitled Dan Fogelman-Steve Carell project, to be directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.
The story centers on Carell, whose wife (Julianne Moore) wants a divorce. To salvage their marriage, he uses a slick life coach (Ryan Gosling) to reform him.
Bacon will play a co-worker of Moore’s, an alpha male who begins an affair with her.
Emma Stone and Analeigh Tipton co-star in the movie that starts shooting later this month.
