The Jim Henson Company. Miguel Arteta is directing.
A classic since it was published in 1972, "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" was written by Judith Viorst and centers on a boy who has a very horrible day and finds out that other people can have them too.
In the script, written by Lisa Cholodenko and Rob Leiber, the boy has a terrible day and wishes his family experienced his suffering, which they later do.
Carell is playing the boy’s father, and Garner would join the project as the mother.
"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" is eyeing a fall start.
