Steve Carell and Keira Knightley may star in 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'

It’s a romantic comedy written by Lorene Scafaria (”Nick And Norah’s Infinite
Playlist”)—who will also be making her directorial debut - the story takes place “at
a time when mankind is forced to absorb the fact that an incoming asteroid will
end humanity. Carell plays a man suddenly alone when his wife leaves in a panic.
His high school sweetheart writes him saying she wants to be with him when the
world stops. His neighbor (Knightley) accompanies him on the road trip as love
blooms at the worst possible time.”

he told 24 Frames. "It's one of those things that
you read and then you ruminate about what would I do, and it forces people to ask those
questions about themselves and what would you do in that situation." ...
