Warner Bros. has tapped Ryan Gosling to star opposite Steve Carell in its untitled comedy about a father dealing with a marital crisis.
Gosling will play a suave best friend of Carell’s character, whose life unravels as he tries to manage his relationship with his children. The team of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (“I Love You Phillip Morris”) is helming the spec script by “Bolt” scribe Dan Fogelman.
Gosling stars opposite Michelle Williams in writer-director Derek Cianfrance’s relationship drama “Blue Valentine,” which TWC picked up at Sundance. He’s also starring with Kirsten Dunst in mystery romance “All Good Things.”
