In the works for nearly two years when Steve Carell first signed on, the rocker dramedy "Imagine" has been moving along very slowly, in fact, not much at all. Last year, Al Pacino signed on followed by more silence, but now with the American Film Market coming up and a spring shoot in the works, there has been a shake up.

Carell's 'Imagine' With Al Pacino Put Into Turnaround At Warner Bros.Up until now, the on screen pairings between Steve Carell and Jim Carrey have been fairly limited. Of course, Carell featured in "Bruce Almighty" where he was the unfortunate victim of Carrey's God-powered tomfoolery (and of course, his character was spun off into "Evan Almighty" which the less said, the better). They also both took voice roles in the animated "Horton Hears a Who!" a couple years back and irony of ironies, Carrey made a (pretty lacklustre) cameo appearance on the season finale of "The Office" last spring, of course, by this point Carell had exited the show. But it now appears that the duo are both going to finally co-star together as Deadline reports that Carrey has taken a role in the long developing "Burt Wonderstone."

Well, this is an interesting bit of casting. With Steve Carell busier than ever with "The Office" now in the rearview mirror, the comic actor has had to shed one of the many projects he's been linked to in the past few months. Dude has to eat and sleep sometime. Stepping away as an actor, but remaining on board as producer, Carell has rounded up a truly inspired choice for the other lead role in the dramedy "Imagine."
