For every guy that has ever been told he only has a chance with a woman if he’s the last man on Earth, the forthcoming project from Steve Carell might be sweet, Apocalyptic retribution.

We’re all obsessed with the end of the world here lately, and according to Deadline Doomsday, Carell might be jumping on the bandwagon alongside Keira Knightley for Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. I think we’ve all fallen for that Craigslist post a few times.

The story focuses on the title-appropriate end of the world, where Carell’s character’s wife has split, and he hits the road with his neighbor, Keira Knightley, to go meet up with his former sweetheart to have a hand to hold when it all stops spinning.

It sounds sweet, and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist director Lorene Scafaria will be directing, so it’ll undoubtedly have a little sour to go with that romance. Will a love story actually blossom between the two characters or will it go the Lost in Translation, older man, younger woman route? Who knows. All I know is that there are a lot of names I like attached to this, and the concept sounds just quirky enough to work.
