     February 24, 2011


Charles McDougall has signed on to direct the comedy Burt Wonderstone. The film stars Steve Carell as a Las Vegas magician who must rediscover his mojo in order to compete with a younger rival. Chad Kultgen penned the original script, and John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) wrote the current draft. THR reports that the film is set to shoot this fall.
