The Big Short’s Steve Carell is set to produce and star in EUROPE AND OTHER MISTAKES aka EURO STYLE. Said to be Old School set on a backpacking trip across Europe, the Universal comedy will follow a 40-something guy who reunites with his old college friends to take the European vacation that he never had in his youth.
The former Office star’s extensive comedy credits include Despicable Me, Anchorman, The Way Way Back, Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and Little Miss Sunshine. Carell has also found success in dramas like Freeheld and Foxcatcher, for which he earned an Oscar nod. He can currently be seen in his Golden Globe-nominated role as Mark Baum in The Big Short.
Carell has pulled double duty as star and producer on some of his biggest hits, including The Office, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Crazy, Stupid Love. Currently, he is executive producer of Showtime’s Inside Comedy interview series hosted by David Steinberg. Carell also serves as executive producer on upcoming TBS police procedural spoof Angie Tribeca, which has been renewed for a second season ahead of its ad-free 25-hour marathon premiere of season 1’s 10 episodes on January 17.
