Steve Carell Is Set to Star in a ‘Looney Tunes’ Movie

By

Steve Carell is set to lead an in-the-works Looney Tunes movie. THR reports that Carell – who stars alongside Channing Tatum in the upcoming drama Foxcatcher – has signed on to star in an untitled film centered on the fictional Acme Corporation from the Looney Tunes cartoons from X-Men: First Class writing team Ashley Miller and Zach Stentz. The Lego Movie producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee are also behind the project, with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa – who also directed Carell in Crazy Stupid Love – in negotiations to co-direct. Plot details on the Acme movie are being kept under wraps, but it will “not center on the Looney Tunes characters and is being planned as a CG/live-action hybrid.”
