Jim Carrey and Emma Stone‘s social circles are drawing closer together. Carrey is in talks to join Steve Carell in the magician comedy, Burt Wonderstone. The Don Scardino-directed film follows Carell, who plays a Las Vegas magician who splits with his longtime partner and is subsequently upstaged by a hip, young David Blaine-type of magician.

There’s no word yet on which role Carrey would play, but don’t be surprised to see him pulling scarf after scarf out of his butt. (Deadline)

Get familiar with Burt Wonderstone. The comedy, set to start filming this October, will star Steve Carell as a magician who battles to maintain relevance in the face of a younger, hipper David Blaine/Criss Angel hybrid who is riding the new wave of a street magic. So it’s pretty much like The Prestige, only not at all. Maybe it’s like The Illusionist. I don’t know because I didn’t see it. I only had room for one period magic drama at that stage of my life.

While Carell’s involvement is the biggest asset this project has, the producers have just announced their director in Don Scardino, whose most notable recent work has been helming episodes of”30 Rock.” It’s Scardino’s feature debut, but his work on “30 Rock” has all arrows pointing to “hilarious.”

Watch The Trailer For ‘Horrible Bosses’ While Your Boss Is Gone

Finally, the writing team behind Burt Wonderstone consists of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the duo behind the upcoming Horrible Bosses, which appears to be one of the year’s most promising comedies.

In summation: Carell, “30 Rock” director, hilarious writers, and a premise that features many goofy magicians. What’s not to like?
