Found this on IMDB Ripleys board From todays "Variety"
THis movie has more ups and downs.....



Carrey set for 'Christmas Carol'
Actor to star in Zemeckis adaptation
By MICHAEL FLEMINGJim Carrey will play Ebenezer Scrooge and the three ghosts that haunt him in "A Christmas Carol," an adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale that Robert Zemeckis wrote and will direct for Walt Disney Pictures.
Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey will produce through ImageMovers Digital. The trio recently made an overall Disney deal for their ImageMovers banner.

Zemeckis will shoot the film using "performance capture/Disney digital 3-D" animation, a continuing evolution of techniques he introduced in "Polar Express" and continues with "Beowulf," the upcoming film that stars Angelina Jolie.

"A Christmas Carol" will also feature a touch of live action and computer graphics, the latter of which ImageMovers employed in the Gil Kenan-directed "Monster House."

The technology provides a playground for the chameleon-like Carrey, who will act the character of Scrooge through several all the periods of his life, as well as the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. Zemeckis wrote the script specifically with Carrey in mind and the actor said yes straight away.

It's the second iconic holiday role for Carrey, who played the title character in the Ron Howard-directed "Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

Bob Hoskins has blabbed to the Internet that he would also be in "A Christmas Carol," inadvertently revealing a project that ImageMovers had been trying to keep secret. While Hoskins-who starred for Zemeckis in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"-might end up in the film, the studio denied that any deal had yet been made with him.

"A Christmas Carol" becomes one of several high profile projects for Carrey, who hasn't determined which he'll make next, or how many he'll be able to complete by next summer, when studios are bracing for possible labor stoppage.

A Carrey priority is "Ripley's Believe it Or Not!," and Paramount, armed with a Steve Oedekerk rewrite, is trying to find a schedule that will allow Tim Burton to direct, even as he completes post-production on "Sweeney Todd," the DreamWorks musical that stars Johnny Depp and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Carrey is also set to play a gay prison escapee in "I Love You Phillip Morris," the Andrew Lazar-produced dark independent comedy written and directed by the "Bad Santa" team of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Carrey's also going to play a reluctant nursemaid to his ailing wife and her family in the Fox comedy "Me Time," scripted by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel. And Carrey just signed on to star in "Sober Buddies," the Andrew Kurtzman-scripted comedy for Universal and Stuber/Parent.

From todays Variety

Jim Carrey agrees with 'Yes Men'

Jim Carrey has said yes to "Yes Man." Carrey will make the Warner Bros. comedy, to be directed by Peyton Reed, his next star vehicle.
Based on a memoir by British author Danny Wallace, "Yes Man" casts Carrey as a guy who aims to change his life by saying yes to absolutely everything that comes his way.

Pic, which begins production in October, will be produced by David Heyman and Richard Zanuck. Script was written by Nicholas Stoller, who co-wrote the Carrey starrer "Fun with Dick and Jane." The project will get a rewrite.

Carrey will follow "Yes Man" with the Robert Zemeckis-directed performance capture film "A Christmas Carol" for Disney, early next year, playing Ebenzer Scrooge and the three ghosts of Christmas that haunt the miser. Carrey expects to make one more film before production June when Hollywood faces a possible labor stoppage.

Carrey, who most recently provided a voice alongside Steve Carell for an animated film based on "Horton Hears a Who" for Fox Animation and Blue Sky, is mulling several scripts that include "I Love You Phillip Morris," the dark indie comedy to be directed by "Bad Santa" writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and Paramount's "Ripley's Believe It Or Not!"

The latter, which still has Tim Burton attached to direct, seems too logistically complex to fit that time schedule and will likely be postponed until the labor union troubles are resolved. Carrey's repped by CAA and managers Eric Gold and Jimmy Miller.
