Warner Bros.’ untitled Acme movie is taking shape.  Heat Vision reports that X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been tapped to write the script for the project, while Crazy Stupid Love screenwriters Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are in early talks to direct.  The film is planned as a CG/live-action hybrid and while story details are under wraps, producer Dan Lin previously told us that the lead character is a Steve Jobs-type and the story revolves around the titular company that makes everything.  Steve Carell is attached to star in what is being envisioned as a big family adventure movie.

Ficarra and Requa just made their directorial debut on the upcoming con artist pic Focus, starring Will Smith and Margo Robbie, so Acme would make their second directorial effort.  Miller and Stentz, meanwhile, are currently busy writing the upcoming Power Rangers reboot.
