Peter Segal has found a new home for his films for the next three years. According to Variety, Segal and his Callahan Filmworks partner Michael Ewing have signed a three-year first-look deal with Warner Bros.
The first film out of the deal will be Liam McBain: International Tennis Star and Proper English Geezer, which was written by Chip Hall and centers on the tumultuous journey of the rise, fall and comeback of an 80s British tennis star.
Another film included in the deal is the DC Comics adaptation of Captain Marvel, written by John August, which Segal will direct. Segal and Ewing had been working on the project for two years at New Line, when the project folded into Warner Bros. along with New Line itself. The story surrounds Billy Baston who becomes the title character once he says, "Shazam."
Segal is also gearing up to direct the sequel Get Smart 2 for Warner Bros. Segal directed and executive produced the first Get Smart film and the original film's writers, Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember, are on board to pen the sequel. Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway and Alan Arkin are slated to return. The film is slated to start shooting next year, depending on Carell, Hathaway and Arkin's availability.
