Crazy, Stupid, Love. directors Glenn Ficarra & John Requa are planning to re-team with Steve Carell for a new untitled film. The I Love You Phillip Morris writer-directors tell Moviehole, “We’re working on something with Steve also, that he’s producing. He’s not starring but it’s based on the idea he had. We wrote the script already. It’s one of these three friends from college, but now they’re in their 40s, movies. They’re going on a European backpacking trip that that they never did. And it’s filled with all this middle-aged fun.” However, Ficarra adds, that the script “doesn’t have a happy ending.”
It’s not too surprising that Carell wouldn’t be attached to star (although that could certainly change if he so chooses) since he has so many other projects on his plate. His next three films are Seeking a Friend at the End of the World with Keira Knightley, Great Hope Springs with Meryl Streep, and the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone. He’s also reportedly attached to Mail-Order Groom with Tina Fey, Get Smart 2 (which he also wrote), Raised by Wolfs, The Abstinence Teacher, A Boyfriend for My Wife, Of All the Things, and Dogs of Babel.
