Universal Sets David Flebotte to Rewrite Untitled FBI Wedding Comedy for Steve Carell

     February 14, 2013

At this point in his career, Steve Carell will never go wanting for projects.  Not all of his movies are hits, but he’s a charming leading man who can do both comedy and drama.  Among his many projects is an untitled FBI Wedding comedy for Universal that is reportedly in the vein of “Stakeout and My Best Friend’s Wedding“.  According to Deadline, David Flebotte has been brought in to rewrite the Phil Alden Robinson‘s script.  Flebotte has been working in TV for years, and he currently serves as a consulting producer on Raising Hope.  Plenty of studios are vying for Carell’s attention, so I’m curious to see if Universal is trying to fast-track the project so they can get it on the actor’s busy schedule.

Carell currently has a big 2013 ahead of him with the upcoming releases of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Despicable Me 2, the Sundance hit The Way, Way Back, and (fingers crossed) Anchorman: The Legend Continues.
