Steve Carell to play a soccer dad on the lam in 'Lunatics'

Universal has purchased the rights to the comedic novel "Lunatics" by Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel
as a starring vehicle for Steve Carell, with Carell also producing through his Carousel Productions.

The novel, which doesn't hit stores until January 10th, tells the story of two men: Philip Horkman,
a happy-go-lucky New Jersey pet store owner who serves as a referee for kids' soccer games on the
weekends; and Jeffrey Peckerman, a cynical soccer dad whose minor feud with Horkman escalates
to the point where the two are eventually pursued by law enforcement, terrorists, soldiers and
some guy dressed up as "Chuck E. Cheese". Carell would play the Horkman role.
