Ambiguously Gay Duo Live-Action Almost Happened19 Feb 2015
By Eva Ara˙jo (Web correspondent)
We already know that the world of entertainment takes many spins. Sometimes movie ideas never get transformed into scripts and sometimes not even script become more that lines in paper.
But with that being sad is also truth that more often than not we get to know about these "failed to launch" ideas.
"The Ambiguously Gay Duo, Robert Smigel's inseparable pair of crime fighters, made their debut almost 19 years ago on the short-lived Dana Carvey Show, before making the leap to Saturday Night Live. Ace and Gary, voiced by Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, respectively, appeared in 13 shorts between 1996 and 2011, when Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon suited up for a live-action version."
What people don't know is that a movie was in the works. Robert Smigel and Steven Colbert worked together on a script to turn these pair of fighters into a live-action.
But as usual, things didn't go well and disputs delay the project who stay in a shelve until 2003. Steve Carell did the voice of Gary and that year he did a movie with Jim Carrey that, when found out about the possibly of a movie, lit up at the idea.
With Jim Carrey on board Universal agreed to comission a script from Smigel. Unfortunately things didn't worked and the movie was never made. Here's the link to the original article.
It's really impressive how things change in this business but we also know that that will never stop for the right movies to be made.
We at JCO will keep you updated as more news come.
