Discuss other upcoming Jim Carrey movies.
... including Three Stooges, The Beaver, and Is This Thing On.
And things that I feel will never get made (Damn Yankees, Ripley's, Pierre Pierre), I'm starting to think that Sober Buddies is getting closer to being made. Again, this is my wishful thinking. This project has always sounded appealing to me
After thinking about it, Will Ferrell doesn't seem to have much going on in his schedule either and everything Ferrell and Carrey have done together (SNL) has been hilarious... well, you get what I'm saying
Well what do you think? There isn't much else for Jim Carrey to do if something doesn't pop up soon.
To God, every living being is beautiful... Except for you.
i think they would be fantastic together in Sober Buddies...............
I guess the credit crunch has hammered the movie industry.........if only they could make movies for realistic smaller budgets...........then more would get made...........
That's funny because I have been here for 4 years and if that is what I wanted in the first place I would have said it from when I arrived, but that is not the case. I developed the story and the screenplay as my admiration for Jim grew and I think it is something worth doing and I bet he likes the plot.
Bah hum bug!!!!
The one from my screenplay... about a 35 year old nerd who owns a donut shop and has six deliquents volunteering their services at his business only to go out with them one day and gets left behind where he finds a genie and she helps him with his troubles.
Bah hum bug!!!!
Here's the synopsis for Lammy's screenplay Chips and Dips.........
Jake who considers himself a nerd always dreamt of owning his own business. He is the owner and manager of six delinquents who volunteer their service at his donut shop, except the employees have no respect for him nor any customer that comes in to the donut shop, making the donut shop one of the townâ€™s worst place to go and enjoy a coffee or donut.
One day Stephanie (one of the employees) decides she needs a few days off. Stephanie and her boyfriend Roland (another employee) come to agree that they do need a break. Both plan a trip to sea inviting Jake and promise to bring him a date, but this was a disguise to the real plan they have of leaving him at sea.
The night came where Jake would company his employees on the boat ride. Jake went as far as going shopping at a local store for new clothing. He was excited to meet his date and to hang out with his employees for he had no friends and has never been on a real date.
Jakeâ€™s employees suggest that he buys beer to bring with them on the boat ride. Jake while inside the liquor store had no idea what to buy so he made the guy behind the counter place whatever liquor bottles he grabbed inside the bags.
The time had came for Jake to meet his date, all the employees where in the car waiting for him to step out of the car and go meet his date at the door but Jake was scared. Finally after a few knee shakes Jake got the nerves to meet his date.
Once at the door Jakeâ€™s date (Susan) ignored him as she made her way to the car upset.
While on the way to the boat deck Susan sat on Jakeâ€™s lap for lack of space in the car. Jake didnâ€™t know what to do while Susan was on his lap, he sweated and felt he was going to pass out through the whole ride.
At the dock everyone rushed to the boat while leaving Jake behind to struggle with the bags of liquor.
On the boat ride Jake was drugged by his employees without him noticing while Susan paid no attention to him.
When they arrived at an island Roland suggested to Jake to step into the island and made up a lie that no one came out of there once they stepped foot inside of the island. On his way out of the boat Jake tripped over a hose and fell out landing face first in the ocean but he still had confidence. He made his way towards the island only for Roland to turn the boat around and leave him behind.
On the island after not seeing his employees Jakeâ€™s confidence wore off, leaving him sad, confused and feeling like a fool. His spirit was shattered until he comes across a shiny object that turned out to be a Genie trapped inside a bottle.
After having a conversation with the Genie at the island Jake back in his home realized that the Genie was in fact real. He knew that things would now be as he dreamt of when he was a young boy, he had a Genie that indeed would help him with all his troubles.
The Genie gives him that confident he only once had but when he got drunk and drugged. The Genie also gives Jakeâ€™s employees a little bit of their medicine by playing tricks on them.
After his employees notice that something weird is happening they discover out that Jake has a Genie and start plotting on a way to steal it from him. They do steal the Genie from Jake only to regret ever doing so because the Genie would have the last say.
In the end Jakeâ€™s donut shop tops the other stores in town, the dream he always wished for. Jake and the Genie live happily ever after.

lol...........back to topic......'if the mountain won't go to Mohammed Mohammed needs to go to the mountain'. Perhaps Jim should use this time to explore making his own movie............he has the rights to some interesting stuff or he could always commision or write his own........he'd have complete creative freedom then............
I agree 100%. Would be COOL if he went down that road.
Bah hum bug!!!!
I wonder what's up with the future plans. Christmas Carol is a fact, Phillip Morris is made and ... well, it looks like there will be a long Carrey-less period in the theatres. There's not one single project moving forward.
