Warner Bros. Gets A BOYFRIEND FOR MY WIFE for Steve Carell

     August 26, 2010

Warner Bros. plans to remake A Boyfriend for My Wife as a star vehicle for Steve Carell.  The 2008 Argentine rom-com centered on a “timid husband who believes the only way out of his stifling marriage is to get his wife to fall in love with another man, so he enlists the help of a legendary yet unlikely Lothario.”  According to Variety, Carell will produce the film and writers Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin (Snow Dogs) will pen the script.

Carell is set to appear in another marital comedy, Crazy, Stupid Love, next year.  As he enters his final season on The Office, Carell is also set to star in the comedies Mail-Order Groom (where he’ll reunite with Tina Fey), Get Smart 2 (which he also wrote) Hi-T, Raised by Wolfs, and The Abstinence Teacher.
