Action Comedy Conviction Will Star Steve Carell As A Bank Robber


Steve Carell’s loading up on the post-Office movies, first with Burt Wonderstone and now with an action comedy called Conviction. The film is about “a convicted bank robber who’s forced by the FBI to entrap his former protege,” which seems like it may require Carell to act like a competent criminal professional, which is pretty hard to imagine. It’s definitely unlike his hapless characters on The Office and in his last action comedy, Date Night. Ha, remember that chase scene in Date Night when he’s in the cab and JB Smoove is the cab driver? That movie wasn’t all bad, I don’t think.
