Warner Bros. has picked up Missing Links, a golf comedy based on a novel from ESPN’s Rick Reilly, with Carell loosely attached to star as a golfer angling for a better place to play.

Steve Carell for Missing Links

Carell will at least produce Missing Links and, if he likes what he sees from the script, he will likely get in front of the camera for it also. Warner Bros. has given the task of writing the screenplay to The Break-Up scribe Jay Lavender. As long as the comedy is nothing like The Break-Up, the production is off to a good start.

Reilly’s 1997 comedic novel tells of the group of bumblers who, after playing for years at a run-down municipal golf course in a working-class Boston neighborhood, concoct a series of schemes that they hope will lead to them teeing off at a nearby elite club.

Another factor that could keep Carell from the project is scheduling conflicts. Thanks to his increasing popularity, the actor doesn't have much of a window at the moment to pick up new roles.

Must be nice.
