Tina Fey And Steve Carell Will Play A Married Couple In Date Night

Ooooh, this sounds good:

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are set to play a married couple in “Date Night,” a 20th Century Fox comedy to be directed by Shawn Levy.

Story follows a couple who find their routine date night becomes much more than just dinner and a movie.

“I wanted to do a relatable, grounded character comedy about marriage and the lengths we go to preserve the spark,” Levy told Daily Variety. “Tina and Steve are smart and relatable, and the tone of their comedy perfectly fits this film.

Sounds like it was pitched as “After Hours, but with a married couple fighting.” In other awesome casting news today, Tina Fey’s 30 Rock co star Alec Baldwin might star in romantic comedy with Meryl Streep.
