Perhaps the funniest Black List script from last year is Kyle Killen‘s The Beaver, about a chronic depressive whose life is taken over by his beaver hand puppet. It’s said by two sources to be in Steve Carell‘s corner. That is, if the term “attached to” means anything. “But he’s also attached to a great many things,” one guy cautions. “I’ve heard they’re readying the next Get Smart for his next hiatus. Carell also has a teaming with Tina Fey in the works, but it’s pricey. He wants to spend time with family, so I’ve heard they’re planning to shoot whatever his next feature is in Massachusetts to accommodate that.”
The next Get Smart?
