Warner Bros.’ untitled Acme movie is taking shape.  Heat Vision reports that X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been tapped to write the script for the project, while Crazy Stupid Love writers/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are in early talks to direct.  The film is planned as a CG/live-action hybrid and while story details are under wraps, producer Dan Lin previously told us that the lead character is a Steve Jobs-type and the story revolves around the titular company that makes everything.  Steve Carell is attached to star in what is being envisioned as a big family adventure movie.

Ficarra and Requa just helmed the upcoming con artist pic Focus, starring Will Smith and Margo Robbie, but it’s unclear if Acme would be their next directorial effort.  Miller and Stentz, meanwhile, are currently busy writing the upcoming Power Rangers reboot.

    This might be the most random thing ever, from the idea to the writers to the directors.

    “Ficarra and Requa just made their directorial debut on the upcoming con artist pic Focus, starring Will Smith and Margo Robbie”- Adam Chitwood
    Um…..I’m pretty sure they already directed both “I Love You Phillip Morris” & “Crazy, Stupid, Love”
    It took me a whole five (5) minutes (if that) to confirm what they had directed on IMDB.
    I guess the point I’m trying to make is that if you’re going to try and be an authoritative voice and write about movies (something that you profess to “love”), you might want to think about fact checking and knowing what the fuck you’re talking about.
    This goes for all “movie sites” not just Collider.
    It’s bad enough that you guys are associated with Matt Goldberg, lets not make it worse.

      Honest mistake after writing 7 stories back-to-back. But thanks for not being a dick about it!

    I don’t know what the hell happened to Jenny Slates idea for a Looney Tunes movie but she has got some explaining to do. Meanwhile, I did like Crazy Stupid Live so maybe they’d be a good team. As for Miller and Stentz, they are going to have to get a script doctor for Power Rangers if they are going to do this project.
