Ripley's still going to happen soon

final stages of selecting the director


http://kenatchity.blogspot.com/2008/05/ ... -2008.html


Believe me, it was a very special evening in Shreveport, standing on the Louisiana Wave Studio set of “I Love You, Philip Morris,” and meeting Jim Carrey for the first time—after all these years of saying that he’s starring in our “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” movie. For a half hour we were “herding cats” together as we chatted about his love for the character of Robert Ripley, and his ideas for pushing the believability/unbelievability of Ripley’s claims and exploits even further than it already is in the current script (by Ripley pal Steve Oedekerk). “Let’s get this movie made soon!” were his parting words, as he walked climbed back onto the boat and proceeded to get drenched, without complaining, again, along with co-star Ewan McGregor.
Here’s the kind of rain we created for the film"

Yes, Ripley is still getting made! Thanks for your support. Paramount is in the final stages of selecting the director, so that the project can move forward again. Stay tuned to the Internet for news on who will helm the movie.

That's some good news, cause somehow I was afraid that it just wouldn't happen. It's a shame it won't be Tim Burton and I'm not sure the script is done by the right person for a project like this, but ... It would be nice if someone like Frank Darabont would be attached to this.

Good news. I'm hoping it's Spike Jonze who's attached.

Burton never really said WHY he dropped out :? Jim is obviously still very anxious to do it.

"National Treasure" movie, similar?
I thought someone was pulling our leg, they've suggested a few things then
withdrawn, I figured it was just another one of those.

What does "herding cats" mean?

Postby Canadian Jayne » Thu Jul 03, 2008 3:48 am

shooting the breeze?
reviewing options?
reminiscing?
gathering disfunctional info?
getting the women together?
reviewing stuff?

not sure what it means?

Too bad he has yet to produce a good movie.

Future looks solid though.
