Jim Carrey replaced in "Loomis Fargo"31 Oct 2013
By Tommy Pihl (JCO Editor-In-Chief)
Moviehole reports that Jim Carrey has been replaced by Zach Galifianakis in the untitled action/comedy movie by Jared Hess, previously known as "Loomis Fargo".
The movie has been in the works for some time. It will now star Galifianakis and Owen Wilson as inexperienced criminals who rob a bank – leaving a trail of evidence behind.
Inspired by actual events, it’ll fix largely on a naive bank employee who decides to risk it all by teaming up with his work crush to rob their place of business. With a team of dopey accomplices, they take off with over 17 million dollars – but their amateur mission will see they don’t get away with it too easy.
There is no reason why Jim Carrey has had to drop out. Maybe the filming of "Dumb and Dumber To" has had an influence in the choice from Jim Carrey.
As of now it looks like Jim Carrey next will star in the comedy "Ricky Stanicky" which is being produced by Michael De Luca and Smart Entertainment's John Jacobs. And will be directed by Jim's friend Steve Oedekerk.
