Warner Brothers has acquired “Missing Links,” a golf comedy based on a novel from ESPN’s Rick Reilly, with Steve Carell attached to star as a golfer dreaming of a better course to play.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carell will produce through his Carousel Productions company. Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock will executive produce. Bobby Cohen is also producing.
Jay Lavender will write the screenplay.
Reilly’s 1997 comedic novel tells of an eccentric group of golfers who are regulars at the worst public golf course in America. They come up with a series of schemes that they hope will lead to them playing at an elite golf club.
