Of All The Things will be based on the 2008 documentary of the same name that "told the story of how songwriter/producer Dennis Lambert achieved rock star status late in life when he went on a singing tour of the Philippines, and discovered he was to Filipinos what Jerry Lewis is to the French." The Hasselhoff to Germans would have been a more impressive comparison.  This is just one of twenty-million projects Carell is currently attached to. He previously hired Daley and Goldstein to write Burt Wonderstone, in which he'd play a magician who kills his performing partner and tries to rebound. With all this rock star and magician talk, you'd think Carell would just put on a live show already instead of wasting time on all these talkies. I'd rather spend a romantic evening under the stars with him singing "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Baby Come Back" instead of sitting in a stuffy theater watching him portray the guy who wrote those hits. Bill Silva, let's make this event happen. You can shout me on my Sidekick. (Deadline)
