Carell, Gandolfini Join “Bone Wars”

“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” cast members Steve Carell and James Gandolfini are re-teaming for the true story comedic telemovie “Bone Wars” for HBO Films and Carousel Television.

The pair play two paleontologists engaged in a race to discover dinosaur fossils known as ‘The Great Dinosaur Rush’.

Carell plays Edward Drinker Cope of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. Gandolfini stars as Othniel Charles Marsh of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale.

While it uncovered some of the greatest discoveries of new dinosaur species, the decade-long feud also left both men ruined.

Both Carell and Gandolfini will executive produce, and a writer is expected to be announced shortly.
