So it turns out that Steve Carell‘s magician-themed comedy Burt Wonderstone doesn’t have Charles McDougal as a director after all. Negotiations have reportedly “broken down,” which leads me to believe he wanted too much money for rabbits or hats or other funny magic things. I lost my job at the pet store over a similar dispute when I kept making rabbits disappear and selling them on the black market. Here’s a plot synopsis, in case this ominous news hasn’t made you lose all faith in the project:

“[T]he story follows rival Las Vegas magicians where Carell plays a magic man dethroned by a hip younger illusionist and then must find a way to rediscover his love for magic.”

Why anyone would allow a job directing a movie about magicians slip by, I will never understand. So anyway, New Line is now looking for a new director to helm the project, preferably one who knows how to take orders and just cut the lady in half without asking a lot of questions.

Somebody please forward this article on to Burt Wonderstone‘s assistant camera operator so that they know whose name to write on the slate. Charles McDougall has signed on to helm the Steve Carell magician comedy.

Written by Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the film stars Carell as Wonderstone, a traditional magician who suffers a career setback when he accidentally kills his partner. When he is upstaged by a younger illusionist, he has to rediscover his love of magic. McDougall has experience in Carell wrangling having had directed episodes of”The Office” and that snuff film that “nice guy” Carell doesn’t want anyone to know about. I’ve already said too much. (THR)
