Tina Fey & Steve Carell Together Again for Mail-Order Groom

December 17, 2009

Tina Fey & Steve Carell

Next April will see Tina Fey and Steve Carell together on the big screen with their action comedy Date Night (you can check out the trailer, which I found to be mostly entertaining, right here), but that doesn't mean they aren't already thinking about working together again as THR reports the comedic duo is loosely attached to star in Mail-Order Groom a comedy about a naive single woman who can't find love and ends up with a husband from Eastern Europe, bringing him home to the good ole United States. However, finding the time for Fey and Carell to do the flick anytime soon could prove difficult considering they're both busy.

Both Carell and Fey have to tend to their respective successful NBC comedy series "The Office" and "30 Rock". Aside from starring in the series, both have ample other responsibilities on their shows (Fey created "30 Rock" herself, and Carell has been producing "The Office" for a few seasons now). Not only is there a small window for shooting, but the project doesn't even have a director yet, and a light rewrite is still in order (Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who both wrote Bad Santa, will be making light changes to the script originally written by Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri based on an idea by Fey's husband). So for now this project has potential, but it also a long uphill climb to get off the ground. We'll keep you updated on this.

Steve Carrell was funny in Get Smart, and I liked Mean Girls a bit, so it has potential.
