Steve Carell has signed onto headline the Untitled Max Winkler Mob Comedy for Warner Bros. Pictures.

New Girl co-star Jake Johnson will also appear in this crime caper from writer Rodney Rothman, who'll base his script on an idea from Johnson and director Max Winkler.

No plot details have been revealed at this time. Steve Carell just wrapped on the comedy Burt Wonderstone, about feuding Las Vegas magicians. It isn't clear if the Untitled Max Winkler Mob Comedy will be his next movie. He also has Anchorman 2 on the horizon, which goes before cameras this January.
