Steve Carell and Tina Fey's Movie 'Mail-Order Groom' Delayed One Year

Ever since filming Date Night together in 2009, Steve Carell and Tina Fey have been trying to team up again for a second movie called Mail-Order Groom. Deadline reports today that, due to the duo's busy film schedules, production on Mail-Order Groom has been delayed until 2014. Carell and Fey started prepping the movie nearly four years ago, when it was supposed to be filmed during the summer of 2010 but that didn't work out. Mail-Order Groom, based on an idea by Fey's husband and 30 Rock producer Jeff Richmond, stars her as a single lady who sends away for a husband from Eastern Europe (Carell). Fey is currently filming a role in the Muppets sequel and is shooting This Is Where I Leave You, an adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper novel that costars Jason Bateman, next. Carell is working on Anchorman 2 right now, after which he'll jump into an adaptation of the kids' book Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. At the rate the two of them are going, they'll probably never be free to go back to working on this thing.
