Carrell's Smart Gets Some Direction

by | December 5, 2005 | Comments

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the big-screen adaptation of "Get Smart," which stars Steve Carrell as a hapless secret agent, will be directed by Peter Segal, the guy who brought you "The Longest Yard," "50 First Dates," "Anger Management," "Nutty Professor 2," and "Tommy Boy."

"Peter Segal has signed on to direct "Get Smart," the big-screen adaptation of the classic TV series for Warner Bros. Pictures. Steve Carell is attached to star as hapless secret agent Maxwell Smart, who was played by the late Don Adams on the small screen. Created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the series saw Adams act as Agent 86, a spy for CONTROL, fighting the evil forces of KAOS. The big-screen version, which has just undergone a rewrite by Tom Astle and Matt Ember, will contemporize the setting, with CONTROL falling on hard times and not getting the big government funding other spy agencies, like the CIA, do."
