Hey, a comedy starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey? Sounds like someone has been watching the only parts of NBC's primetime schedule that don't make you want to die. This could be good, right? Nope:

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are set to play a married couple in "Date Night," a 20th Century Fox comedy to be directed by Shawn Levy.

Josh Klausner wrote the script, based on an idea by Levy, whose 21 Laps will produce. Story follows a couple who find their routine date night becomes much more than just dinner and a movie.

Levy, who is shooting Fox's "Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian," intends the pic to be his next directing assignment.

If you didn't catch that, Date Night is being directed by the man responsible for choking the final breaths out of Steve Martin with Cheaper by the Dozen and The Pink Panther, giving us our first taste of Ashton Kutcher-married-as-comedy with Just Married, and making Night at the Museum and its upcoming sequel. In other words, Carell and Fey will be the slices of bread holding together a shit sandwich.
