Directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who made their debut with the still unreleased black comedy, I Love You, Phillip Morris starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, may next be working with Steve Carrell on his next film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carrell is circling an untitled project that will see him play a father raising his kids as his marriage falls apart. Sounds incredibly broad/generic; but bear in mind that those two guys wrote Bad Santa, and their latest film see's a comedic superstar getting off with Obi Wan Kenobi. We smell black comedy gold.

Carrell will next be seen in the broad/generic looking romantic comedy Date Night opposite Tina Fey; while you can also catch him in The Office - one of the damn finest comedies on your telly box.
