Burt Wonderstone Conjures Up Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey.

Steve Carell let go of one starring role this week, but at least his new project is shaping up nicely. Deadline reports that Carell's Bruce Almighty co-star Jim Carrey has come onboard Burt Wonderstone, which will star Carell as a big-time magician who splits with his partner and finds himself threatened by an upstart David Blaine type. Which role will Carrey play? And how long will it take for him to hit up Carell for Emma Stone's digits? Too soon to say! [Deadline]
