Crazy, Stupid, Love is out this coming Friday and it is actually a lot of fun. Now the film's directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are re-teaming with their star, Steve Carrell, on a new project reports Moviehole.
"We’re working on something with Steve also, that he’s producing. He’s not starring but it’s based on the idea he had. We wrote the script already," Requa says. "It’s one of these three friends from college, but now they’re in their 40s, movies. They’re going on a European backpacking trip that they never did. And it’s filled with all this middle-aged fun." They also confirmed that they were offered the directing gig on Bad Santa 2; "Yeah. They want us to direct it, but we said ‘No'. We’ll see how it goes. If it comes out great then that sells DVDs for the original. And if it comes out bad it makes the original seem that much better."
Carrell is typically great in Crazy, Stupid, Love and you could do a lot worse than see that film this weekend. That said, Ryan Gosling has another absolute belter out the same day - Drive. If you see one film this weekend, see that.
