Jennifer Garner could join Steve Carell in a Disney adaptation of kids' book Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Alias star Jennifer is in talks to play Steve's wife and the couple would be the parents of main character Alexander, according to Hollywood Reporter.

The film is about a little boy having a bad day who wishes his family could understand by having a tough time too, which they eventually do.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve is already signed up to the kids' film which is due to begin shooting in the autumn.

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day has been a classic in children's books since it was first published in 1972.

It will be directed by The Good Girl's Miguel Arteta and Lisa Henson of the Jim Henson Co is producing along with Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum) and Dan Levine.

If Jennifer, 41, does agree a deal she will be back with Disney who she worked with last year on The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.

Her next film, Dallas Buyers Club - about a man diagnosed with Aids - which she stars in with Matthew McConaughey, is due out later this year.

She is also due to begin shooting on American football drama Draft Day, set for release next year.

Steve, 50, has voiced Despicable Me 2 which is out later this year and is currently filming Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual.

This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
