LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Actress Anne Hathaway is considering joining the Hollywood adaptation of the former TV sitcom "Get Smart."

The 24-year-old actress is negotiating to star alongside "The Office" star Steve Carell in the upcoming film version of the TV comedy originally created by director Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, said Daily Variety.

If "The Devil Wears Prada" actress joins the production when filming begins in March, she will reprise the role once made popular by actress Barbara Feldon on the secret agent-based series.
