Steve Carrell is shedding his former “40-Year-Old Virgin” image and heading to prison in his upcoming new film “Conviction”.
Deadline reports that the funnyman will star and produce in a heist film that was bought as a spec script two years ago by Warner Bros and Silver Pictures.
“Conviction” will follow a mastermind bank robber who serves five years in prison following a botched heist who is forced by an FBI agent to entrap his protege as the upstart pulls off a multimillion-dollar job.
The film will have a “48 Hours” and “Ocean’s Eleven” tone to it, with Carell at its center. Joel Silver will produce the film with Carell and Silver Pictures head Andrew Rona.
