Untitled comedy starring Steve Carell similar to Stakeout.
Universal Pictures has acquired rights to the comedy out of turnaround from Warner Bros. Pictures, reports Variety.
Steve Carell will star as well as produce alongside Charles Segers and Bob Cooper through Carousel Productions, Sparkler Entertainment and Landscape Entertainment companies, respectively.
Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams, The Sum of All Fears) writes and the logline has not been disclosed as yet. Apparently it will be similar in tone to My Best Friend's Wedding and Stakeout.
Carell is up next in Warners Crazy, Stupid, Love (shown above) comedy which is also producing via Carousel. That film comes out July 29th and includes Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon, Emma Stone and Marisa Tomei.
Another upcoming project he is assuming the same responsibilities on is New Line Cinema's Burt Wonderstone magician comedy.
