When one looks at Steve Carr‘s filmography — Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Daddy Day Care, Dr. Dolittle 2, and Are We Done Yet? — one is, almost assuredly, surprised he still manages to find work. But THR tells us the director’s been hired to helm an ensemble comedy, The Wedding Day, for CBS Films.
The script, a Black List entry by Andrew Goldberg, “revolves around a number of guests who meet — and whose personalities collide — over the course of one day at a wedding.” We haven’t really heard anything in the ways of casting news, so this is really all we have to go on right now — and it isn’t too much.
But I’m hoping the placement of Goldberg‘s script on a well-regarded slate could make better subject matter for Carr, rather than dumb jokes and Ice Cube as the film’s star. Although he doesn’t make the best movies, he does know how to make some money, considering Paul Blart pulled in $180 million worldwide back in 2009, and Daddy Day Care (unfortunately) making $103 million in the U.S. Oh, America.
Are you interesting in seeing Carr direct The Wedding Day?
