Steve Carell is to play a leading role as a rock stars estranged son in the forthcoming Dan Fogelman-directed 'Imagine'.
Steve Carell is set to star in 'Imagine'.
The 'Dinner for Schmucks' actor will play a lead role in the comedy drama about an ageing rocker who goes on a hunt for his son (Carell) because of a letter written to him by John Lennon inspiring him to change his life.
The movie will be the directorial debut of 'Cars' screenwriter Dan Fogelman, who has yet to cast an actor in the role of the music star.
Carell will produce the project, which does not yet have a start date.
It is not the only movie project for Carell in the near future - he is also set to star in 'The Abstinence Teacher', about a divorced sex education teacher, with Sandra Bullock, which is currently in pre-production and set for a 2012 release.
