Now that Jim Carrey's crazy days are behind him with The Number 23, he is now looking to return to comedy by playing a house husband.
Jim Carrey Needs a Little Me Time
20th Century Fox has picked up Jim Carrey to star in Me Time. In what sounds like a poor translation of some Asian film, Me Time was written by writing duo Ian Roberts and Jay Martel. They developed the feature with Carrey in mind to topline.
Oh yeah, when I threw my last party I had Carrey in mind to show up. He didn't, but I guess I am just not as lucky.
Me Time revolves around a writer penning a book about his great-great-grandmother, a frontier woman. When his pregnant wife has to go on bed rest, leaving him to care for the house and their other child, his confidence is shaken as he reads his ancestor's diary, in which she describes raising a family, plowing the fields and taming the wild environs.
Though Carrey convinced audiences that he could handle any genre with Eternal Sunshine, the actor only got to $35 million domestically with The Number 23. Oh well, you can't win them all.
Carrey has been due a new project, especially considering that two of his films -- Used Guys and Ripley's Believe it or Not -- were shelved last year thanks to budget concerns. To draw more negative attention to himself, Carrey went on tilt and pulled out of A Little Game along with Cameron Diaz.
Whew! Talk about a lot of drama for the In Living Color funnyman!
For a bit of good news, Ripley's is back on with both Carrey and Tim Burton still on board - hurray!
