The cinematic adaptation of Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day isn’t having such a hot day itself. Director Lisa Cholodenko has just exited the project, about two years after she initially signed on. This isn’t the first setback for the film, which found a new home at Disney last fall after Fox dropped it over budget concerns. On the bright side, Steve Carell remains attached to star as Alexander’s father. More details after the jump.

Steve Carell to Star in FBI Wedding Comedy

Steve Carell has made a career of bouncing from traditional to not-so-traditional comedies. One day he’s the wacky guy, the next he’s the serious guy; we love him in both roles. Just look at the next few movies the actor has coming out. On the obvious side he’s got sequels like Despicable Me 2, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and the magician comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. He’s also starring as a killer in Bennett Miller’s true-crime film Foxcatcher and a very serious type — almost a villainous role — in the Sundance hit The Way Way Back.

His latest film falls into that more wacky category, for sure. Universal has set Carell to star in an untitled FBI Wedding comedy. Originally written by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams, Sneakers) it’s now being rewritten by TV vet David Flebotte (Desperate Housewives, Raising Hope). Read More »

But in typical sequel fashion, Anchorman: The Legend Continues plans to go even bigger with a veritable “murderer’s row of day players,” according to co-writer/director Adam McKay. Now, he seems to be making good on that promise as Kristen Wiig becomes the cast’s first fresh face.
