Despite his withdrawal from 'The Office' to spend more time with family, Steve Carell signed a deal with DreamWorks studios to tackle 'Raised by Wolfs'.
Steve Carell is preparing to take a bite out of Hollywood - the funnyman will star and produce upcoming comedy "Raised by Wolfs". The comedian confirmed last month he would not be returning for the next season of hit U.S. show "The Office" as embarrassing boss Michael Scott in order to spend more time with his family.
But the star's movie career continues to blossom and he's signed a deal with DreamWorks studios to tackle the Les Firestein film on the big screen. Movie bosses have yet to release plot details, reports Daily Variety.
Along with Michael C. Hall, Steve Carell was the toast of Monte Carlo on June 10 after taking the top honors at Monaco's largest TV event. The stars came out to attend the 50th annual Monte Carlo TV Festival, which saw Carell named Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in "The Office", while Hall landed the Best Actor in a Drama Series award, for "Dexter".
