Steve Carell lifts the Cone of Silence from 'Get Smart'

Posted on


Smart_lThat Steve Carell: busy man, he. I mean, no wonder the star absentmindedly put on a woman’s suit on last week’s episode of The Office!

Well, with his celebrated sitcom on hiatus and Evan Almighty finally hitting theaters this summer, the comedian is now at work on a big-screen remake of the greatest footwear advertisement before the O.J. trial, Get Smart. And, hey, USA Today has a fun little first look at the movie, which costars Anne Hathaway (pictured, with Carell) and Oscar winner Alan Arkin (Carell’s Little Miss Sunshine costar) and is directed by Tommy Boy‘s Peter Segal. Sure, Don Adams’ famous shoe phone is still around, but lots of changes are promised for the updated spy spoof thanks to things like, you know, the fall of communism.

I know, I know, sounds totally fun and cool. But no holding your breath: It’s still 14 months until Get Smart‘s June 2008 release. Are you psyched to check it out?
