Update: Jennifer Garner (The Odd Life of Timothy Green) will play Alexander's momin Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Steve Carell will play the dad. No word yet on which kid gets the plum role of Alexander, a kid who wakes up with gum in his hair and the day just goes downhill from there. 

March 14, 2013 -Miguel Arteta is in talks to become the Third director for Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day for Disney. Arteta's forte seems to be outrageous comedy, his previous films are Michael Cera's Youth In Revolt and Ed HelmsCedar Rapids, both of which were Rated R. Lately, he's been directing episodes of TV shows including the pilot for "The Carrie Diaries" and an episode of "New Girl." This is a straight up children's movie, I'm not sure why this project keeps attracting directors »
