Steve Carell to wave magical wand in New Line comedy

HollywoodNews.com: Thanks to Steve Carell, a project that has been in development for the last four years at New Line, “Burt Wonderstone,” will finally see the light of day.

Per Variety, New Line bought the source material, which was a spec entitled “Burt Dickenson: The Most Powerful Magician on Planet Earth” in 2006.

The feature is set in the die-hard world of Las Vegas magicians. When one member of a two-man team dies in a risky act, the other loses his mojo for the craft and must rediscover it.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who are behind New Line’s much-buzzed about comedy “Horrible Bosses,” wrote “Wonderstone.”

Carell’s production label Carousel Productions has a number of projects set up at Warner Bros:

— a Civil War comedy with Ed Helms

–a remake of Argentinean comedy “A Boyfriend for My Wife”

— and “Crazy, Stupid Love,” directed by “Bad Santa” duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, which is due out on April 22.

Carell, who is often known for hitting $100 million live action comedies out of the multiplex, fell slightly short this year. “Date Night” made $98.7 million at the domestic B.O., while his summer laffer “Dinner for Schmucks” barely made its production cost back with $72.3 million.
