Ever have one of those wacky dates where you go out for dinner and a movie, and end up on some wild caper? Yeah, me neither, but with Steve Carell and Tina Fey, it could happen!
That’s the premise of “Date Night,” their new comedy from 20th Century Fox being directed by Shawn Levy.
Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Taraji P. Henson, Common and Jimmi Simpson are also on board, along with Leighton Meester and Kristen Wiig.
Wahlberg will play a private security/black ops agent, while Franco will play a con man.
This could either be really funny or not-so-funny, depending on how it all comes together. But with Carell and Fey as leads, you’ve gotta think it’s going to be funny. I have high hopes anyway.
