Steve Carrell finds Boyfriend for Wife

August 27th, 2010

Steve Carrell is developing a remake of 'A Boyfriend for My Wife'.

The 2008 Argentinean romantic comedy - originally titled 'Un novio para mi mujer' - concerns a man who enlists the help of a legendary yet unlikely lothario to fall in love with his wife so that he can divorce her.

It is thought that the 'Dinner for Schmucks' actor will take the main role in the project, Variety reports.

The 48-year-old star will produce the film through his Carousel Productions company, with help from Christine Peters, who worked on 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days', and Michael Cerenzie.

Grace Ledding will co-produce while Carousel partners Charlie Hartsock and Vance DeGeneres will act as executive producer on the project.

The script was written by Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin - the writers behind the Cuba Gooding Jr. movie 'Snow Dogs' - and is being made by Warner Brothers.

Meanwhile, Steve - who has a number of projects in development through his production company - will next star alongside Kevin Bacon in 'Crazy Stupid Love.'
