We're still getting over Steve Carrel's performance in Apple TV+'s The Morning Show. So... how is he going to top it?

Amazon Studios just announced that, in partnership with Mandeville Films, they've cast Carell in Antti's Toumainen's film adaptation of The Rabbit Factor.

The dark comic novel follows insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen as he calculates life's hardest problems - most literally. The story picks up when he's fired from his job and inherits a theme park from his brother. The chaos surrounds the parks' inability to perform as it sees incredible financial problems (stemming from criminal elements) and misbehaved employees. When the bills begin to fall behind - the criminals in which loans were taken from, come back to settle their debt.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will be producing alongside Mandeville Film's Alex Young. Both the author and Federico Ambrosini will be executive producers.

Alongside this project - Carell is set to star in Netflix's Season 2 of Space Force, and will be the voice of Gru in Illumination's Minions: The Rise of Gru.
