Jim Carrey And Adam Sandler Reportedly Eyed For Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy
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.
Burt Wonderstone Posters Turn Steve Carrell And Jim Carrey Into Cards
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 May Star In Heist Comedy Loomis Fargo
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.
Dumb And Dumber Sequel Script Almost Finished
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.
Jim Carrey Pursued For Kick-Ass 2 Role
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.
Dumb And Dumber Sequel Still Happening, Says Jeff Daniels
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
Dumb & Dumber Sequel Dead Without Jim Carrey, Says Jeff Daniels
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
Is It A Good Thing The Dumb And Dumber Sequel Isn't Happening?
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...
Jim Carrey Drops Dumb And Dumber Sequel
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
Dumb & Dumber Sequel Will Shoot In September
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
Jim Carrey's French Comedy Pierre Pierre Back On Track
Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton penned the Pierre script, which imagines Carrey as “a self-indulgent French nihilist” 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 parents’ house. Awesome.
Writers Hired For Bruce Almighty Sequel
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.
Watch Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey And Eva Mendes Perform Twas The Night Before Christmas
There are a bunch of good reasons to get drunk on Christmas. Sometimes you don't want to deal with your family, there's plenty of eggnog lying around, and sometimes it helps make the movie a little funnier and Chinese food taste better (those last two are for our Jewish friends out there). Should you decide to get drunk on Christmas, however...
Olivia Wilde Romancing Steve Carell, Jim Carrey In Burt Wonderstone
People are going to come to Wonderstone to see Carell play off of Carrey, but it’s encouraging that director Don Scardino is going out of his way to surround the comedians with solid character actors and eye candy (I mean Steve Buscemi, of course)
Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer And More On Burt Wonderstone Short List
Deadline reports that Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer, Sarah Silverman and Jessia Biel are in the running to fill out the comedic triangle, though we’re not sure yet what role the actress would play in director Don Scardino’s film. But depending on which actress you choose, you’re going to get a specific tone that could take Wonderstone in completely different directions.
