DreamWorks Nabs Carell Comedy “Raised By Wolfs”
DreamWorks Studios has nabbed the rights to an original comedy from Steve Carell and his Carousel Productions company. Les Firestein wrote the project which has Carell attached to star and produce through his production group.
All sides involved in the project are keeping their lips sealed as to the plot, but the choice of spelling for “Wolfs” seems to imply that it refers to the main character’s last name. Carell’s Carousel partners Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock will executive produce the project.
Carell has been a busy actor as of late. He has three comedies, “Missing Links,” “Mail-Order Groom,” and “Hi-T” set up at Warner Bros. Carell will also appear in theaters this coming Friday in the comedy “Dinner For Schmucks.” It was also announced recently that Carell will be leaving the cast of NBC’s wildly popular sitcom “The Office.” Firestein has a long track record that includes head writer of “In Living Color” and executive producer for “Wanda at Large.”
