Bruce Almighty To Return With Carell In Control
The funnyman, who played a bumbling TV news man in the first film, has signed on to recreate his role in the sequel Evan Almighty.
Carell's star is on the rise after scoring hits on TV in the US version of British comedy The Office and in surprise movie hit THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, which topped the box office charts in America last weekend (21AUG05).
He's expected to earn 10 times more than the $500,000 (GBP277,800) he made for The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
In Evan Almighty, God will set Carell's character the task of building an ark in preparation for a great flood.
