Now that he is done working as the boss man on The Office, Steve Carell has wasted no time in getting back to work on his next project. The comedian teamed up with British actress Keira Knightley to shoot scenes of their new film “Seeking A Friend For the End of the World” in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, May 18th, 2011.
Now I don’t normally watch “end of the world” type of movies but this romantic dramedy might have enough of all the other qualities I look for in a fun film.
Carell stars as Dodge, a man whose wife leaves him when panic sets in after an asteroid begins to make its way towards Earth. In a surprising turn of events, he hears from his high school sweetheart who wants to meet the end of days by his side. But when his neighbor Penny (Knightley) decides to join him on his journey, love blossoms at the worst possible time.
Sitting in the directors chair is screenwriter Lorene Scafaria in her directorial debut. Focus Features has already signed a distribution deal to bring Seeking A Friend For the End of the World to theaters in 2012.
