Steve Carell has signed on to star in Warner Bros.' feature remake of the 2008 music documentary Of All the Things, about songwriter-producer Dennis Lambert.

After his song successes in the 1970s and '80s (including "Baby Come Back" and "Ain't No Woman Like the One I've Got"), Lambert moved to Florida to sell real estate. The documentary, directed by his son Jody, follows him on a two-week concert tour in the Philippines, where he discovered his solo album was wildly popular 35 years after it was released.

Writing duo Jonathan Goldstein and Freaks and Geeks's John Francis Daley will pen the reboot.
