Steve Carell will return as blundering – actually, he wasn’t that blundering in this incarnation was he? – agent Maxwell Smart in a sequel to this year’s “Get Smart”, says Variety.

“Get Smart” grossed $130 million domestically and $230 million worldwide for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures spurring the former to offer Carell a three year first-look deal with the studio – on top of the sequel.

Carell has formed Carousel Prods. Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock will run the shingle, which will take offices on the WB lot.

“My idea was to partner with friends of mine, people I trusted, with whom I share a certain sensibility,” Carell told Daily Variety. “I have some ideas for films, but I’ve gotten to know so many people who are funny, talented and fertile with ideas that I’m confident this very strong base of friendships will lead to projects.”

Carell also plans to produce pics that will not be starring vehicles for him.

“Finding things to do as an actor is the first order of business, I suppose, but I’m not limited to things in my wheelhouse,” Carell said. “I’m also looking for films I can produce that aren’t right for me as an actor.”
