Steve Carell to Star in Thriller Directed by Gore Verbinski

Gore Verbinski will direct a paranoid thriller starring Steve Carell with shooting starting in March for New Regency.

The untitled film is the first in a multi-year deal between Verbinski’s Blind Wink and New Regency. Steve Conrad (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) is writing the screenplay.

Once he’s completed the Carell project, Verbinski will shoot back-to-back projects for New Regency: horror film “A Cure For Wellness,” written by Justin Haythe (“Revolutionary Road”) and the tentatively titled action-comedy “Passengers,” written by Conrad.

Verbinski’s credits include “Rango,” the first three “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Ring” and “The Lone Ranger.”

Carell will be seen next in “Foxcatcher.”

New Regency is currently in production on Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s western “The Revenant” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, scheduled for release around Christmas 2015 through Fox. New Regency’s “Gone Girl” opened last weekend through Fox and topped the box office. Inarritu’s “Birdman” will open Oct. 17 via Fox Searchlight.

Verbinski is represented by CAA. Carell is represented by WME and Media Four Management.
