Set Photos Reveal Steve Carell, Olivia Wilde, and Steve Buscemi in 'Burt Wonderstone'

For the better part of a decade, audiences around the world have vehemently demanded a movie following the illusionist exploits of GOB, the imbecilic cad from Arrested Development.  Since a GOB Bluth-based movie won't redefine the image of cinematic magicians for all time, though, we've got to put our hopes in Burt Wonderstone, a comedy centered on a successful Vegas magician who loses his professional partner and must rediscover his flare for the magical.  The production is currently on location in Las Vegas, and a fresh batch of unofficial photos from the set provide our first peek at Steve Carell looking quite different from The Office's Michael Scott as Wonderstone himself, along with a blonde-haired Steve Buscemi and Olivia Wilde sporting a pretty funny little outfit.

The photos, taken at Bally's Hotel and Casino, are here courtesy of Coming Soon, where you can hop, skip, or jump to see an extra picture or two.  Maybe just one extra, but still, it's an extra picture of Olivia Wilde, so why not?


The story for Burt Wonderstone was laid out by Chad Kultgen, the novelist behind the very funny The Average American Male, but the screenplay was thoroughly rewritten by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the duo responsible for last summer's Horrible BossesDon Scardino directs, and though he doesn't have too much experience with features, the man has directed no fewer than 35 episodes of NBC's 30 Rock, one of the funniest shows on television.

Steve Carell is the lead, and he'll be playing off Jim Carrey, who we've yet to get a good look at in character.  Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi lend support, along with ringers like James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin, Brad Garrett, and Jay Mohr, who plays a character amusingly named Rick the Implausible.
