Steve Carell and Tina Fey are set to play a married couple in a new comedy called 'Date Night'.

According to Variety, '40-Year-Old Virgin' star Carell has been cast opposite '30 Rock' writer and star Tina Fey.

The film, which will be directed by Shawn Levy, follows a couple who find their normal date night becomes much more than just dinner and a movie.

The film will begin production next year when Carell is not shooting 'The Office'.

Levy is currently shooting 'Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian'.

Carell's 'Get Smart' opens on 22 August and Fey's comedy 'Baba Mama' is currently in Irish cinemas.
