Carell To Take On Sellers?
THE OFFICE star STEVE CARELL is reportedly in talks to resurrect the work of late comic PETER SELLERS.
Carell, a longtime fan of the Pink Panther funnyman, is said to be negotiating a deal to remake 1967 film The Bobo, which originally starred Sellers and Britt Ekland, with himself in the lead role.
A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "Carell is a huge Sellers fan, and this is one of his favourite movies. Seeing him in a matador outfit with a Spanish Castilian accent could be very funny."
Eva Mendes is said to be favourite to take on Ekland's role in the new version of the comedy.
