If this sounds like a heavy role for him, don’t worry. Steve Carell is set to play a French general in an upcoming film called The Adventures of Brigadier Gerard.
The spoof movie calls for Carell’s character to be a goofy, dumb, and brave general during the time of the Napoleonic Wars. That’s quite a combination!
Gerard follows Napoleon from his rise to power to his permanent exile. The comedy is based on stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
