"Ace Ventura Jr." - Status: On DVD in March

Now confirmed! Morgan Creek is planning a new Ace Ventura movie. Jeff Sank and brothers Jason and Justin Heimberg (Kingpin) are writing the script.

In the new movie, the eccentric detective's son steps into his father's shoes to take over the family business.

Quote from Rotten Tomatoes:
"Remember what happened when someone tried to do a "Dumb & Dumber" sequel without Jim Carrey? How about when they slapped together a Carrey-deficient sequel to "The Mask"? You think those would be a pair of solid lessons learned right there, eh? Guess again. Here comes a Carrey-free "Ace Ventura 3."

Funny details:
Son of the Mask (2005)
Production budget: $84 million
US Box office: $17 million

Dumb and Dumberer (2003)
Production budget: $19 million
US Box office: $26 million

O MY GOD! Just heard the news on Joblo. Okay, when they wanted to do a Mask or Dumb and Dumberere I was dissapointed. But when they do Ace, the one and only with someone else ... I'M PISSED! Nah! :evil:

Lol you know what the funny thing is? .... Why on earth would someone wanna remake a movie? - Cause its a realllly great movie! Right???? But then ... they stuff it all up without having the main actor in it. So then the movie loses all meaning *rolls eyes*.

They've admitted that it was a good movie cause they're doing a sequal. SO they knew Jim was good - why not use him? ..... and dont blame it on Jim saying he doesnt like sequals. The directors dont even bother asking him

Hey wait, what is that over there?.... Oh yeah I think it's the apocalypse!

In the worst case Ace's son will be very young and will fight crime with CGI talking animals! Hooray! :P

*regurgitating breakfast*

Never get tired of bashing those silly sequels/spinoffs, they're so pointless that they're almost fascinating!

quite honestly, despite the fact that i don't like them doing another Jim-spin-off/sequal, i am going to try and remain optimistic about this.

first, the main character is Ace's son....which i think is a smart move b/c if they try to do it with Ace as the lead character, it would spell disaster.

second, those the bashing usually begins when we find out about the movie, i think we should hold back a bit. one, we don't know who is going to be in the movie nor do we know who will direct.

also, i think another reason why these movies keep happening without Jim is more likely b/c of how much he asks per picture. i know it's less then 20 million but production company want someone they can get easily.

That was exactly my point in my post... but I couldn't spit it out. Jim made all those great movies, now when they re-do them they're gonna be so crap. Therefore when someone says "oh did you like Ace Ventura" people will think of the lastest one and think its all crap! for everyone! If I were Jim i'd be outrageous because.... it's just all crap

well the kick to that is that Ace's son may not even be a kid. He could be all grown up or a teenager.

oh and i liked Dumber and Dumberer as well. :lol: i am a hardcore D&D fan. 8)

Exactly! I mean no matter how much I hate Dumb & Dumberer and Son Of The Mask, I still saw them! Didn't pay though, no sire!

Whats the point!. All my friends are just going to blame Jim if this film a disaster which it will be, just at the point when I was convincing them that Jim is a good actor. :evil:
