Jim Carrey showed up at the L.A. premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and spilled some details on a new high-concept comedy he will be working on with Potter producer David Heyman.

Jim Carrey for Yes Man

MTV caught up with Carrey at the event and asked the actor what was next on his to-do list. Though Carrey has spent some time outreaching to other genres including thrillers and dramas, it looks like he is ready to return to high-concept comedy.

“I’ve got this film with Jim Carrey called Yes Man, which I hope will get into production in the fall,” Potter producer David Heyman revealed to MTV News this week at the L.A. premiere of “Order of the Phoenix.”

After the perceived failure of Carrey’s thriller “The Number 23,” Yes Man will return him to the high-concept comedy realm that served him well in “Liar, Liar” and “Bruce Almighty.” The flick will mix the dilemmas he faced in those films with a more realistic concept along the lines of the Peter Sellers classic “Being There,” with Carrey’s character using his self-imposed limitations to uncover the strange roads life takes him down.

“It’s about a man who finds himself very depressed, and is always saying no. When friends ask him out, he always says no,” Heyman said of the script. “[The film will explore] what happens when he decides to say yes to every thing that comes his way.”

Carrey is building a collection of comedies coming our way including Sober Buddies.

Stay tuned for updates.
