The sequel we never quite believed would really happen isn't just happening-- it's yelling in your face in this brand-new, red-band trailer, which premiered at Next Movie. Yeah, you have to be over 17 to watch it. What do you think we are, child-endangerers?
It presumably wonít take any amount of elaborately constructed mirrors or intentional distraction to make The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a runaway hit. Itís directed by Don Scardino, a television veteran with who helmed a season and a half of 30 Rock throughout its run. Stars Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey are playing over-the-top comedic roles that still feel atypical to what we normally see them doing
It's weird that we've gotten to this point, but Jim Carrey is actually due for a comeback. The hands-down biggest comedy star of the 90s seemed completely unstoppable for nearly a decade, and was even earning Oscar buzz for some movies while cavorting around in insane Grinch makeup for others (OK, just that one)
Guardians is an unconventional comic-book property, and Marvel is approaching it with a little more freewheeling daring-do than they have, say, a traditional Iron Man or Thor movie. Hiring Super director James Gunn, for instance, was a bold step in a fresh direction, which is why Iím keeping a very open mind to the possibility of Sandler in a Marvel movie.
Steve Carell has built a career out of playing the sad sack everyman, but in his next movie heíll drape himself in sequins and become a superstar. The new movie Burt Wonderstone casts Carell and Jim Carrey as rival magicians out to destroy each other.
Jim Carrey is now in talks to star in Loomis Fargo, a true heist tale that is set to be directed by Jared Hess, one of the co-directors of Napoleon Dynamite. Described as one of the biggest heists in American history, the story follows four men in the south who managed to get $17 million out of an armed Loomis Fargo truck.
Really, no one wants to see a Dumb and Dumber sequel if it doesnít star Carrey and Jeff Daniels. That would be certain death. Thankfully, if the Tweet can be believed, the Farrellys are writing for Carrey and Daniels, so weíll hopefully see the duo back in action in the sequel.
File this one under very-unconfirmed at this point, but it's looking like there's a chance Jim Carrey could be headed back into superhero territory. The actor, who once played the Riddler in Batman Forever, is reportedly being "courted" to join the cast of the Kick-Ass sequel, Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.
Alright, now we really don't know what to believe about a Dumb & Dumber sequel. The Farrelly Brothers have been hinting at it for years, and earlier this year it seemed to be actually happening, with Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey both saying they were on board, and the Farrellys promising a September shooting date
To be honest, it's unclear how much Daniels is really upset about the project falling apart. He's done a lot of excellent work in the last decade that seemed to directly counteract his Dumb & Dumber goofball reputation; on The Newsroom, the new show from Aaron Sorkin
After much hoopla, speculation and in some corners, excitement, it now appears Dumb And Dumber To wonít be happening. Carrey released a statement through his rep this morning confirming the news and citing lack of studio interest in moving forward as his determining factor to bail. Whether that means Warner Brothers and New Line were unwilling to spend the money or dismissive of all the early plot ideas is open to debate...
When the Farrelly Brothers were promoting The Three Stooges, the pair surprised many by announcing plans to make a Dumb and Dumber sequel, insisting Dumb and Dumber To would shoot this fall. Jim Carrey had teased an interest in reprising his role as the chip-toothed buffoon Lloyd Christmas
Even before they started production on the completely atrocious looking The Three Stooges, the Farrelly Brothers were kicking around another terrible idea, to make a sequel to their landmark 1995 hit Dumb & Dumber
Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton penned the Pierre script, which imagines Carrey as ďa self-indulgent French nihilistĒ who steals the Mona Lisa and tries to sell it in London. His plan is to use the money to finally move out of his parentsí house. Awesome.
Universal Pictures has already tried to make a follow-up to Bruce Almighty†and it was an incredible failure. I am, of course, referring to Evan Almighty, a comedy starring Steve Carell that cost a whopping $175 million to make, but made only $100 million at the box office (and only $172 million internationally). Still, the first film was a smash hit, netting nearly $500 million globally.
