Steve Carell is in negotiations to star in David Frankel’s comedy/drama “Great Hope Springs” reports Deadline.

Vanessa Taylor (TV series “Jack & Bobby”) penned the script which tells the story of a couple working out their lives together following a 30 year anniversary.

Carell would play a therapist named Dr. Feld who counsels the wife (Meryl Streep) and her husband. Jeff Bridges and Phillip Seymour Hoffman have previously been connected to the role of the husband.

Filming would kick off in August for an unspecified release sometime in 2012.
