     February 18, 2011


Steve Carell has reportedly begun negotiations to co-star with Meryl Streep in Great Hope Springs.  Directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada), the story centers on a couple (played by Streep and an actor TBD) who, after 31 years of marriage, go into intense couples counseling to decide whether or not they should stay together.  According to Deadline, Carell is in talks to play the couple’s marriage therapist, Dr. Feld.

With his exit from The Office scheduled to air this Spring, Carell is set to become a ubiquitous presence in mainstream movies.  He’ll next be seen this summer in the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love. with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and after he shoots Great Hope Springs, he’ll move on to Burt Wonderstone.  Carell is 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, and Of All the Things.
