Tina Fey and Steve Carell are making the most of their hiatuses from 30 Rock and The Office by teaming up for a new movie, Date Night. In the film, Tina and Steve play a married couple who get more than they bargained for when heading out for a night on the town.
Director Shawn Levy explained to Variety why the comedy duo was his first choice for the the film. “I wanted to do a relatable, grounded character comedy about marriage and the lengths we go to preserve the spark,” Levy said. “Tina and Steve are smart and relatable, and the tone of their comedy perfectly fits this film.”
The movie began filming a few weeks ago in Los Angeles but is now wrapping up in New York City. Last week, they filmed a brief night scene on on Broome St in NYC. Onlookers report that the couple turned onto Broome Street in a car and Carell then attempted to parallel park a number of times, before both of them exited the vehicle in the scene.
Tina and Steve aren’t the only TV stars in the movie, due in theaters next year. Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester reportedly plays their babysitter while That 70’s Show’s Mila Kunis and Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig are also rumored to appear in the movie.
