WB Purchases New Script for Steve Carell


Warner Bros. Pictures has bought an untitled spec script by Cars and Bolt screenwriter Dan Fogelman that is a star vehicle for Steve Carell, reports Variety.

Carell will play a father whose life unravels while he deals with a marital crisis and tries to manage his relationship with his children.

The trade says that Fogelman wrote the script specifically with Carell in mind, and WB paid a premium for that. The script becomes a candidate for one of two films Carell will do during his hiatus from “The Office,” the other being Mail-Order Groom with Tina Fey.
