Steve Carell to Star in The Lunatics

Movie News

Sure, you fans of “The Office” were bummed when Michael Scott Steve Carell left the show earlier this year, but have you seen this guy’s résumé?! It’s no wonder he left with all the films he had to juggle while filming a hit TV show.

Now that he’s out & concentrating full-time on his silver screen roles, Deadline reports that Universal Pictures has acquired the Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel novel Lunatics, with Steve Carell attached to star.

The novel is about two New Jersey soccer dads whose minor feud escalates to create worldwide consequences, and leave them running for their lives. Carell will play Philip Horkman, the owner of a pet store who refs kids soccer games on Sundays, and there he meets an irate soccer dad who triggers the misadventures.

“The Lunatics” will be produced by Scott Stuber and Pam Abdy of Stuber Pictures and Carell and his Carousel partners Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock.

Carell will soon start filming “Burt Wonderstone” with Jim Carrey in January for New Line and Warner Bros. Earlier this month it was announced that Carell would also be starring in “Conviction”.
