It looks like Charlie Kaufman and Steve Carell may work together after all. Carell was originally set to star in the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind scribe’s excellent-sounding musical Frank or Francis, but the feature was postponed due to lack of financing. He then turned his attention to the FX pilot How and Why, only to see the network pass on picking it up to series earlier this year. Now Kaufman has been tapped to rewrite a star vehicle for Carell, and it sounds kind of great. The Adaptation. and Being John Malkovich screenwriter will pen an adaptation of Arthur Herzog’s science-fiction novel IQ 83, which revolves around the outbreak of a disease that is slowly making everyone dumber. More after the jump.
