Steve Carell on Par for Rick Reilly Golf Comedy 'Missing Links'

Warner Bros. has acquired “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.

Carell will produce via his Carousel Prods banner, while the company’s Vance DeGeneres and
Charlie Hartsock are on board as exec producers.

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.
