Kevin Bacon will footloose his way from James Gunn’s “Super” to an untitled Steve Carell comedy, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The veteran actor will star opposite Carell, Julianne Moore and Ryan Gosling in a John Requa/Glenn Ficarra-penned comedy about a man (Carell), whose wife (Julianne Moore) wants a divorce. To salvage their marriage, he uses a slick life coach (Ryan Gosling) to reform him.
Bacon will play Moore’s co-worker, and lover.
Emma Stone, of “Superbad” and “Zombieland” fame, has also been cast in the Warner Bros pic.
