Anton and Burt...

We haven’t heard much lately about the Steve Carell / Jim Carrey comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Thanks to USA Today we have some new information about the film that also stars Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, and Jay Mohr. First up is the release date of March 15, 2013, just a week after the Paul Rudd / Tina Fey pairing in Admission. A trailer for the film will be released on Friday.

The article has some two photos, including this incredible pairing of Carell and Buscemi as Burt and Anton, channeling real-life Vegas entertainers Siegfried and Roy. Carell joked about his chest having to be shaved saying “My pecs make a cameo in the film.” Jim Carrey plays a street magician who upends the normal order, and he’s looking perfectly edgy in the second photo, below.

The film seems to signal Carell’s return to broad comedy after spending 2012 squarely in “dramedy” territory with Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Hope Springs.
