BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
In case you forgot, Hit-Girl lost her actual father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage), during the initial Kick-Ass movie. She’s attempting to start over in a new school with a new foster family, seeking what virtually every superhero in the history of comic books has ever wanted – the chance to put aside their mask and live a normal life.
“I think magicians are a lot more arrogant,” Carrey said. “That’s what bothered me about magicians growing up. I was always fascinated by it growing up, they’re kind of like, ‘Abracadabra, you’re an idiot!’ They don’t let you in on the joke. Comedians are in on the joke, unless you’re Andy Kaufman.”
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 won’t take any amount of elaborately constructed mirrors or intentional distraction to make The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a runaway hit. It’s 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 I’m 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 he’ll 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 doesn’t 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 we’ll 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 won’t 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
