Jim Carrey clearly enjoys working with Steve Carell. We’ve got news that Carrey is in discussions, and very close to a deal, to join Carell in the comedy Burt Wonderstone.
If the deal goes through, which it looks as if it is about finished, Burt Wonderstone will be the third time that Carrey and Carell have starred together after Horton Hears a Who, Bruce Almighty and Carey's tiny little part on The Office.
Wonderstone follows a pair of magician teams that are rivals in Las Vegas. Wonderstone (Carell) has to rediscover his love of magic after breaking up with his partner. Meanwhile a street magician team is taking their spotlight, forcing the pair to reconcile and make a go at the big time once again.
Burt Wonderstone will be directed by Don Scardino and released by New Line.
