Sandra Bullock may instruct Steve Carell on “Abstinence”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Could Sandra Bullock be teaching “Abstinence” to Steve Carell?

It’s possible, though it might not happen for some time. While thumbing through the latest Production Weekly, the Playlist editors noticed a mention of an adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s novel, “The Abstinence Teacher,” about a divorced Sex Ed teacher who falls for her daughter’s born-again soccer coach.

And while “Abstinence” long has been on the radar of “Little Miss Sunshine” co-directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Back in 2004, this was to be their “Sunshine” follow-up, in fact. They are still attached to the project, yet this time out, so are Bullock and Carell.

Of course, there are hurdles to overcome, most having to do with everyone’s schedules. The Playlist does a fine job of breaking down who already has what project on the agenda. But in the realm of fantasy casting, we’d love to see Bullock and Carell in a left-of-center romantic comedy, and think Dayton and Faris would be excellent choices to make “Abstinence” fly.

Stay tuned for details.
