"The Office" star Steve Carell and "30 Rock" creator Tina Fey are loosely attached to star in the comedy "Mail-Order Groom" for Warner Bros. Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the site: The duo, who will be seen opposite each other in next year's "Date Night," are loosely attached to star in "Mail-Order Groom," a Warner Bros. comedy about a naive single woman who can't find love and ends up with a husband from Eastern Europe, bringing him home to the States.

Robert Carlock and Scott Silveri penned the script based on an idea by Fey's husband Jeff Richmond, while "Bad Santa" scribes Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have come onboard to do a rewrite.

The Hollywood Reporter also mentions that the project has no director, and the only window for Carell and Fey to shoot would be the hiatus of their TV shows. Fey doesn't wrap "Rock" until March 23, then goes into PR mode during the month of April for "Date Night."

Both actors are at the top of the comedy game right now, starring in two of the most original and funny sitcoms on television. Any project involving them together would be something worth seeing.

The trailer for “Date Night” showcases both Carell and Fey’s chemistry together, but as the site mentioned, timing may de-rail the project.

“Date Night” will be released April 9, 2010.  View its trailer below.
