Steve Carell Gets Dumped


Warner Bros. Pictures has acquired Dumped, a comedy Vic Levin will adapt as a star vehicle for Steve Carell based on a novel by Andrew Gottlieb, reports Variety.

Carell would play a man searching for new meaning in his life after his wife abruptly files for divorce.

Carell and his Carousel Production partners Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock would produce.

Carell next stars with Tina Fey in the Shawn Levy-directed Fox comedy Date Night, and he is expected to next reprise his Maxwell Smart role in a Pete Segal-directed Get Smart sequel for WB next spring.
