Universal Picks Up Untitled FBI Wedding Comedy as Vehicle for Steve Carell

     June 28, 2011


Because nuptial-themed cop movies are always funny, Universal has picked up a pitch for an untitled FBI wedding comedy as a possible starring vehicle for Steve Carell. The studio acquired the project out of turnaround from Warner Bros. Showblitz reports that Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams) will pen the script, and while the plot is unknown at this point, it’s said to be in the vein of Stakeout and My Best Friend’s Wedding.

Carell is currently filming the post-apocalyptic comedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World which stars Keira Knightley, Patton Oswalt, Connie Britton and Rob Huebel. He also stars alongside Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love which opens July 29th.
