Steve Carell has attached himself to an action comedy called Conviction, Deadline reports.
The project, originally designed as a straight action thriller, is going to be rewritten to play as a comedy. The original version had the leading character getting out of prison in exchange for helping to catch his former protege, about to pull off a significant heist.
Written by Jonathan Herman, Conviction will be produced by Joel Silver.
