Universal Pictures has made a deal with Steve Carell to write his own comic vehicle, which is untitled and based on his original idea
Steve Carell has more than one new project to finish. The actor has inked a deal with Universal Pictures to write his own comic vehicle, which is untitled and based on his original idea. Moreover, both parties also reported to have bought "Juvenile" of Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn.
Carell himself alongside Mary Parent and Scott Stuber will produce either project. As of "Juvenile" it is categorized as a drama comedy, in which Carell is set to play the most Caucasian man in America, who's sent to juvenile prison for a petty crime he committed as a kid. Then suddenly this suburban drip is surrounded by 11-year-old bad-asses.
Carell will next be seen in Universal's "Evan Almighty," the studio spin off of "Bruce Almighty."
