Gore Verbinski will direct Steve Carell in an untitled paranoid thriller that New Regency will put in production in March. It’s the first project in the multiyear deal between Blind Wink and New Regency, and several others will follow in quick succession. The script was written by Steve Conrad, whose credits includeThe Pursuit Of Happyness and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. The plan is for Verbinski to follow this one by shooting back-to-back projects for New Regency. Those films will be A Cure For Wellness, an elevated horror film written byRevolutionary Road scribe Justin Haythe, and Passengers. The latter is the working title for a large-scale action comedy also scripted by Conrad.
Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell have been comedic peers since the early ’90s, when they performed in the improvisation troupe Second City in Chicago; later, they were correspondents on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”
The pair will be reunited once again for this year’s Montclair Film Festival fund-raiser in New Jersey, organizers are to announce on Monday. The event, “A Conversation With Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell,” is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Nov. 21 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
These comedians are having busy fall seasons: Mr. Colbert is hosting “The Colbert Report” while planning for his move to “Late Show” on CBS, while Mr. Carell (above right with Mr. Colbert) is drawing Oscar buzz for his role inBennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” which is scheduled to reach American movie theaters in November.
The Montclair Film Festival event will include highlights of the two together at Second City as well as conversation on their formative years on “The Dana CarveyShow.”
Mr. Colbert and his family live in Montclair, and his wife,Evie McGee-Colbert, is the vice chairwoman of the film festival’s board of directors. The fourth Montclair Film Festival will be in May.

“It’s starting to make me car sick and I don’t get car sick,” claims Garner, of the digital studio simulator that projects HD footage of passing traffic and other typical commuting sights on a giant monitors.
Although the process, which was used extensively in the Tom Cruise movie, Oblivion, makes for a hyper-realistic experience without ever having to leave a set, it’s taking its toll on Garner’s noggin.
“Every time I’m driving and the monitor jumps back or there’s a bus that crosses the screen, it does something bad in me,” apologizes Garner. “I don’t know what it is, but, not good.”
“She was holding her hair in front of her face the whole time so she wouldn’t have to see the bus,” shares co-star Steve Carell.
