Carell Tapped For Get Smart Sequel

Comedic actor STEVE CARELL has reportedly been tapped for a forthcoming sequel to his spy-themed action film GET SMART.
The summer (08) blockbuster's huge commercial success landed Carell a multi-million dollar three-movie deal with studio Warner Bros. last month (Oct08).
The deal does not include any more secret agent sequels.
But, according to the New York Daily News, studio bosses are "moving forward" on the project - in which Carell will reportedly have producer credit.
One studio insider tells the publication: "He's not asking for ridiculous money. It's not green-lit yet, but it's in active development."
A Warner Bros spokesperson adds: "We're not having any difficulty with Steve. We have a great relationship. We just signed a first-look production deal with him. He's on the lot now. We're looking forward to a long relationship."
Get Smart has grossed more than $230 million (GBP144.1 million) worldwide to date.
