Steve Carell is swapping The Office for the wild to star in a new comedy called Raised By Wolfs.

The comedian confirmed last month he doesn’t plan to reprise his role as embarrassing boss Michael Scott in The Office next season – in order to spend more time with his family.

But the star’s movie career is still booming with roles in Date Night and upcoming comedy Dinner for Schmucks – and he’s signed a deal with DreamWorks studios to tackle the big screen again in the Les Firestein-written film.

Movie bosses have yet to release plot details, reports Daily Variety.
