Dumb And Dumber Header

Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s Dumb and Dumber To nearly fell apart after Jim Carrey reportedly walked out after he felt that Warner Brothers was less than enthusiastic about the seuqel. A few months after, Jeff Daniels quelled some fears saying that Carrey wants to be back, and that production for the long-gestating sequel would begin soon. But that’s history.

The Hollywood Reporter has word now that the studio is dropping the project from its distribution slate, which means that competing distributors are now able to buy the rights for the film.

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Red-Band Trailer: Try To Have Fun, Otherwise What’s The Point?

Kick-Ass 2 Header

Kick-Ass started a new generation of heroes who possess no superhuman powers but the passion to project the city. It may not have been the box office smash Lionsgate hoped it would be, but it made just enough for a sequel to be green lit. The thing is, Lionsgate isn’t behind this film any more, nor is the film’s first director Matthew Vaughn. Instead, Universal Pictures will distribute Kick-Ass 2, with Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow steering the ship.

By the looks of the new trailer that has popped up, things haven’t changed for Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Johnson still plays Kick-Ass, a hero with semi-delusions of grandeur. Moretz plays Hit Girl, a hostile teenager, who acts much older than her age. Their actions have inspired the people of the city to become heroes like them. But Mintz-Plasse’s Mother F***er plans to take revenge on the two heroes who took his crime lord father’s life, by assembling the most bad ass super villains in the city.

Did I forget to mention that Jim Carrey has a role in this film? Hit the jump to see the red-band trailer.

Disney Offering Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler Roles In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Guardians of the Galaxy Image

Considering just how crazy having a large tree or a raccoon on a team of heroes or space outlaws is, I am not surprised at who Disney may be considering to cast for Guardians of the Galaxy. According to Latino Review, the studio is reportedly courting comedians Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for roles in the James Gunn-directed film. No word yet on who they would be playing, but based on the original report it wouldn’t be Star Lord. According to LR, the two could be playing/voicing Groot – the large humanoid tree – and/or Rocket Raccoon – a character with an affinity for large high-powered weapons.

No word yet on if the offer is for both roles or just one role in particular, but in any case I can guess which actor most fans could feel disgruntled about if he was cast. So for now, let’s take everything with a grain of salt. Nothing has been confirmed, and all that we know is that Disney has an offer on the table.

Jim Carrey May Star In Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall

Now that Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall is scheduled for summer release next year, production for the film is shortly getting underway. The cast, however, continues to grow. Recently John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, and Robert Emms all have been cast in key roles, but Universal is looking to add another big name to the casting sheet.

Deadline says that the studio has been courting Jim Carrey for a “showy” supporting role in the film. According to the site, Carrey would play The Colonel, a hero who “helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil.”

Jeff Daniels Says ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel Begins Production Next Summer

Jeff Daniels

Despite what Jim Carrey has said about not being a part of the Dumb and Dumber sequel because of Warner Bros. lack of interest in getting the film into production. But during the Television Critics Association (TCA) panel for The Newsroom, Jeff Daniels said some interesting things that seem to contradict what Carrey has said in the past.

Here’s the exact quote:

“Oh sure, even more so now. Jim wants to do it. I want to do it. The Farrellys want to do it. They want to rewrite the script a little bit and they aren’t trying to jam it in before I have to go back and do ‘Newsroom’ in November. So they’re going, ‘Why don’t we just do it right? Let’s get everybody organized to go next May or June.’ If everything works out on the business side, that’s what we’ll do but I think there’s more hope than ever.”

Jim Carrey Now Out Of The Farrelly Brothers’ ‘Dumb and Dumber To’

Jim Carrey

It is really sad to see a promising comedy fall apart, especially if it’s a comedy that everyone has been waiting for. Let’s pretend for a moment like the Dumb and Dumber prequel Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd never happened. Or if you are of the group that never watched it in the first place, then you need not worry. But if you did, pretend it never happened. Everyone has been waiting for a true follow-up to Dumb and Dumber, and for a moment it looked like it was going to happen.

Warner Brothers was setting up a sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, which would have the original stars of the film Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels come back and reprise their respective roles. Now it appears that Carry is unhappy with WB’s unenthusiastic interest for the sequel, and as a result, he has pulled himself out of the project.

Dumb and Dumber

At a press junket for their latest movie The Three Stooges, directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly took some time to discuss the long-rumored sequel to their 1994 smash hit debut Dumb & Dumber, which also helped launch the career of star Jim Carrey. Coming Soon reports that Peter Farrelly said that the movie is definitely in the works with the stars returning and that the brothers are looking to begin production later this year on Dumb & Dumber 2 (title subject to change).”

We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” Farrelly said. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

Dumb and Dumber

After the unwatchable mess that was Dumb and Dumber prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, no one expected to hear from the once lovable losers anymore.

But now comes word that Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly are not done with the characters quite yet. It’s being reported that now that the brother filmmakers have finished up work on their long-coming The Three Stooges, they hope to make a proper sequel to the 1994 comedy hit, and this time they hope to do so with stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their roles.

Blu-ray Review: Disney’s A Christmas Carol

A Christmas CarolDisney’s A Christmas Carol
DVD | Blu-ray | 3D Blu-ray
Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Starring Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth
Walt Disney Pictures Home Entertainment
Release date: November 16, 2010

Ever since 2004’s The Polar Express, filmmaker Robert Zemeckis has been obsessed with motion-capture performance and has been at the forefront of its technology. With his hand so firmly planted in the medium, it’s no surprise that his last few films have employed motion-capture animation, including his latest, Disney’s A Christmas Carol.

I’ll admit, with each film the animation does gets better. Beowulf (2007) trumped The Polar Express, and now A Christmas Carol tops Beowulf. But, I have to ask, how many more classic stories must Zemeckis run through the mo-cap mill before he gives it a rest?

I don’t mean to sound harsh. Like I said, the technology is improving and I think non-human characters are rendered wonderfully with motion capture, for the most part. I just wish Zemeckis would maybe do an original script, like James Cameron did with Avatar, and give adaptations of classic novels a break for a while.
