Cameron Diaz replaced in "Fun With Dick & Jane"

Postby TNPihl » Thu Jul 22, 2004 10:41 am

TĂ©a Leoni is in talks to replace Cameron Diaz and star opposite Jim Carrey in Columbia Pictures' Fun With Dick and Jane, which begins shooting later this summer. Dean Parisot is directing the remake of the 1977 comedy, with Brian Grazer producing. Diaz dropped out due to a scheduling conflict from a change of shooting dates.

George Segal and Jane Fonda starred in the original as a down-on-their-luck couple who turn to robbery to maintain their lifestyle. The remake has been updated with Carrey playing an Enron-like executive who finds himself an umemployed pariah.

Judd Apatow and Nick Stoller wrote the film's script. Leoni next stars with Adam Sandler in the James L. Brooks comedy Spanglish, also at Colubmia.

TĂ©a Leoni, born 25. February 1966 (New York)


I was hoping that Cameron Diaz and Jim Carrey was reunited in this movie. Maybe another movie. :D 8)

yeah, I'd rather see Leoni than Diaz. Diaz isn't so great anymore. her movies are stinky lately. I think she's lost that gift and quit concentrating on working. She seems to be having too much fun.

I hope I didn't offend anyone. nice to see Jim working with someone new.

I'm a little shocked by it, because like you Tommy I wanted to see Jim and Cameron together again... but Tea should be ok. I liked her in Deep Impact. :)

I'm not a huge fan of Tea Leoni, I don't think she pulls off the comedy thing that well (example "Naked Truth")... pretty good actress though.

I would have loved to see Jim and Cameron together again. Maybe another time.
