Steve Carell will stick with Universal and pen the screenplay for his next vehicle, says Variety. With “Evan Almighty,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” and “Get Smart” already in the works, Mr. Carell looks to be busier than Will Ferrell over the next few years.

“The studio has made a deal with Carell to write his own comic vehicle, which is untitled and based on his original idea. They’ve also bought the Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn pitch “Juvenile.”

The Gunns, who are cousins, pitched “Juvenile” directly to Carell and his manager, Steve Sauer, who then took it to U.

“The idea is for Steve to play the most Caucasian man in America, who’s sent to juvenile prison for a petty crime he committed as a kid,” Mark Gunn said. “Suddenly this suburban drip is surrounded by 11-year-old bad-asses.””
