Carell Gives “Boyfriend” A Makeover

Steve Carell will produce and star in a remake of 2008 Argentine romantic comedy “A Boyfriend for My Wife” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety.

The Juan Taratuto-directed original followed a timid husband stuck in a stifling marriage who enlists the help of a legendary yet unlikely Lothario to help get his wife to fall in love with another man.

Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin (“The Wild,” “Snow Dogs”) will adapt the script while Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters will also produce.
