What’s next for Steve and John

Since it’s a rather slow Office news day (not counting spoilers, of course), how about some tidbits on what Steve and John are up to?

Steve Carell

  • Get Smart. Work starts in March on the big-screen version of “Get Smart,” in which Steve plays Maxwell Smart. Read a short blurb about it here.
  • Horton Hears a Who. Steve will supply the voice of the mayor of Who-ville in an animated movie version of “Horton Hears a Who,” scheduled for release in 2008. Jim Carrey will voice Horton the elephant. See the full article and first-look image here.

John Krasinski

  • Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. John will write and direct the big screen version of the David Foster Wallace book. More information at Cinema Blend.
  • A New Wave. Okay, this isn’t a future project, but I thought y’all might be interested in this if you haven’t seen it yet. This is a movie John made last year which is still awaiting release. Warning: this is no Jim Halpert. Watch the trailer of A New Wave here.
