Jim Carrey, ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Producers Eye Reteam On ‘Deep Cover’

17 December 2014 4:42 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: After November’s Dumb And Dumber To scored $128 million worldwide (and counting), it’s a no-brainer that Red Granite would want to stay in the Jim Carrey business. I hear the finance and production shingle led by Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland has snapped up comedy pitch Deep Cover from writer Johnny Rosenthal. If deal sticks it’ll be a starring vehicle for Carrey, continuing his successful relationship with Red Granite, while Carrey would also produce alongside Michael Aguilar for their Some Kind Of Garden banner.

Plot details of the original pitch are being kept under wraps. This summer Rosenthal sold The Three Tenors to Lionsgate. He’s also got action comedy Iron Jack in development at Sony and wrote Bad Santa 2 for Dimension.

Red Granite (Friends With Kids, Out of the Furnace, Horns) opened its doors in 2010 and came out swinging last year with Martin Scorsese’s »

"Kick-Ass 3" - 'Hit-Girl' Becomes 'Hit-Woman' ?

7 December 2014 5:45 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Kick-Ass" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy, starring 'Mindy' aka 'Hit-Girl':

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base including director Quentin Tarantino, that supports Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as young female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass 3".

X-men: First Class Director Matthew Vaughn Buys Rights to Young Adult Series Ghostgirl

4 December 2014 12:44 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While we wait patiently for director Matthew Vaughn's Kingsmen: The Secret Service to come out next year, the director has added a new project to his slate of potential directing vehicles.  Variety reports that Vaughn's Marv Films has acquired the movie rights to Tonya Hurley's Ghostgirl young adult novels.  Per Variety, the books center "on a high school senior who is desperate to be popular even after her death — from choking on a Gummi Bear."  That sounds pretty fun, and I imagine it would have to be a more welcome return to a high school setting than the abysmal Kick-Ass 2, which Vaughn produced. Vaughn is currently not attached to direct Ghostgirl, and it should be noted that Vaughn is very careful when it comes to selecting his films.  He chose not to return for X-Men: Days of Future Past and decided to pass on Star Wars: Episode VII. »

Why The Kick-Ass Co-Creator Still Hates Jim Carrey

4 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Before the release of Kick-Ass 2, Jim Carrey stirred some trouble when he withdrew support for the movie because of the harsh gun violence. Kick-Ass co-creator John Romita Jr. was, as an understatement, quite unhappy with this betrayal, and vows to never work with Carrey again. Romita was most upset because he felt Carrey could have played up his anti-gun agenda without hurting the movie, and hurting the crew that worked extremely hard to produce the film. John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar sat down with Comic Book Resources a few months after the Carrey debacle to discuss the final comic book in the series (that the movies are based off of), Kick-Ass 3 #8. When the subject of Carrey and his disaffiliation came up, Romita jumped on the opportunity to share his thoughts: As for Jim Carrey, I know I.ll never work with that bonehead again, so let me say this. »

3 December 2014 3:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matthew Vaughn’s Marv Films has acquired the motion picture rights to the “Ghostgirl” series of young adult novels by author and filmmaker Tonya Hurley.

Vaughn and Valerie Van Galder will team up to produce.

The books have been published in 20 languages. The Latin America “Ghostgirl” has sold more than 1 million copies.

Jim Carrey Came Really Close To Playing This Comic Book Villain

30 November 2014 4:32 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The comedic goofiness of Jim Carrey has brought life to some of the more strange and silly characters in cinema. We.ve even seen him put his spin on comic book characters such as Riddler in Joel Schumacher.s Batman Forever, Stanley Ipkiss in The Mask and more recently as Colonel Stars and Stripes in Kick-Ass 2. But, arguably what could have been his greatest comic book villain role is left as a 'what if'. Carrey might have have played alien supercomputer, Brainiac, in the 1990s canceled movie Superman Lives. Carrey came pretty close too. If the movie had gone into production, he would have had a shot. Concept artist, Rolf Mohr recently shared what had happened during his time on the defunct Tim Burton movie, Superman Lives, and included a Jim Carrey name drop. Comic Book Movie reports that Mohr explained the character in detail, and the difficulty he »

'Steve Jobs' Biopic Has Been Dropped by Sony

20 November 2014 12:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a rather surprising turn of events, Sony Pictures has pulled the plug on their highly-anticipated Steve Jobs biopic, putting the project into turnaround, with Universal Pictures eyeing to quickly pick up the project and issue a green light. No reason was given for Sony's sudden move, in which even the Academy Award-winning power of writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle couldn't save.

While most projects that get unceremoniously dumped by a studio often have a long road to get to the big screen, sometimes waiting years to find the right home, Universal's quick pick-up may be a blessing in disguise, with Deadline reporting that Universal may close the deal as early as tomorrow.

The news is quite shocking since there has been active news on the casting front, with Michael Fassbender being courted to play the title character, and Seth Rogen also in talks to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. »

Box Office Report: Dumb And Dumber To Is Number Won

16 November 2014 1:07 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels returned to the #1 spot close to 20 years after first portraying Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, as Dumb and Dumber To rode a wave of 1990s nostalgia to take an estimated $38.1 million at the North American box office. That result was slightly above expectations, beating the mid-fall starts of raunchy road trip comedies like Due Date ($32.7 million) and Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa ($32.1 million). The opening is also slightly below the five-day opening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues ($39.5 million from its Wednesday bow).

Dumb and Dumber To was a big question mark heading into the fall season. Although the original film is a big comedy hit and has remained a popular title on cable, had 20 years simply been too long between films? Anchorman 2 proved that despite a lot of fan excitement, a nine-and-a-half year gap is a lot to contend with between movies. So, expectations were more conservative. »

14 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Jim Carrey has graced the big screen for over 30 years.

Carrey started off as a stand-up comic in Canada, but veered towards TV and film a few years after his move to Hollywood. The actor landed a variety of roles in no time, and Carrey's big break came in the early '90s on the popular sketch comedy show "In Living Color" (1990-1994). After becoming a featured player on the show, Carrey was offered the lead roles in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask," and "Dumb and Dumber" -- all in 1994. Yeah, he did all right. This fall, Carrey returns to one of his landmark roles, playing the affable goof Lloyd Christmas in "Dumb and Dumber To."

From his friendship with Tupac to his co-star romances, here are 29 things you probably don't know about Jim Carrey.

1. James Eugene Carrey was born January 17, 1962 in Ontario, Canada to Kathleen Oram and Percy Carrey. »

Jim Carrey hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend -- talk about it here!

25 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sunday Update: Click over for a full recap of SNL with Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea Original Post: All righty then. Sorry—I know that reference is as painfully dated as this Austin Powers costume. But it's tough not to think about Jim Carrey's best-known roles as we consider the actor's third SNL outing—and, to be honest, to consider how long it's been since he last made a great comedy. 2013's Kick-Ass 2 was a dismal flop. That same year, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone tanked as well. The most charitable thing you can call 2011's Mr. Popper's Penguins is "inoffensive. »

The 'Deadpool' movie might be PG-13

22 September 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last week, Fox announced it was making a Deadpool movie, news which you either greeted with loud cheers because They’Re Finally Making A Deadpool Movie!!!!!!! or a confused shrug because Who The Hell Is Deadpool???? While he has a lower profile in the mainstream, Deadpool is a beloved figure in comic book circles. The best way to understand him is to know that he’s sort of a meta-character: An anti-superhero psychopath who frequently breaks the fourth wall and just-as-frequently kills people/things in the bloodiest way possible.

“Bloodiest way possible” may not be in the cards for the Deadpool movie, »

Chloe Moretz Says Piracy Means 'Kick-Ass 3' Probably Won't Happen

27 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Gifted young actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been making the publicity rounds for her latest tearjerking drama If I Stay, and that means she's been fielding questions about projects other than the current one she's promoting. And considering most of the general population knows he as the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass and last year's underwhelming sequel, she was inevitably asked about Kick-Ass 3. However, rather than being hopeful about the possibility of another film in the R-rated comic book franchise, she pretty much shot down any hopes fans might have of seeing her suit up again. More below! Speaking with Digital Spy, Moretz lamented that Kick-Ass 3 probably won't happen: "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. »

Chloe Moretz Says She's Done Playing Hit-Girl, Blames Piracy For Killing Plans For 'Kick-Ass 3'

27 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kick-Ass” gave fanboys something to squeal about in 2010. Dark humor? Check. Sweet fight choreography? Check. Perfectly placed Nicolas Cage insanity? Double check. And it was a hit, earning nearly $100 million worldwide, which is not too shabby for an R-rated, niche comic book movie. Three years later, “Kick-Ass 2” delivered none of the above. The sequel opened at number five at the box office, and barely scraped its way to $60 million. And Chloë Grace Moretz blames downloaders for the film's failure, alleging they are the reason a third movie won't happen. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Moretz told Digital Spy. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. “ 'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, »
