Latino Review reports Marvel is reportedly courting both Jim Carrey and/or Adam Sandler for yet-to-be revealed parts in James Gunn‘s 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy. The only role they certainly won’t be playing is Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, but they might be asked to provide the voice of Rocket Raccoon or another of the non-human characters such as Groot.

Jeff Wadlow‘s superhero sequel, Kick-Ass 2, is one of the many sequels being released in 2013 people are forgetting about. When he’s put up against Superman, Iron Man and Thor, it makes sense though. Kick-Ass is just a guy with no powers and the will to stop crime. The little superhero that starred in Matthew Vaughn’s 2010 film returns this year with most of the surviving cast returning (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse) along with several new characters, played by the likes of Donald Faison, John Leguizamo and Jim Carrey.
The latter, once the biggest comedy star on the planet, shows up in the first official image from the film. Check it out below. Read More »
Bobby and Peter Farrelly made their directorial debuts, and cemented their comic careers, with the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as a couple of well-meaning but doltish best friends who embark on a disastrous road trip from Providence to Aspen.
The film was a smash, thanks in part to the new popularity of Jim Carrey, and in the past couple years the vague prospect of a legit sequel by the Farrelly Brothers has turned into a script and tentative plans to shoot. Originally announced to roll film in September of last year, Dumb and Dumber To has been pushed back, but will still go on, according to Peter Farrelly. Read More »

Jim Carrey will be stealing more than just scenes in his next project. The actor has just entered talks for Loomis Fargo, based on the true story of a $17 million armored car heist that took place in Charlotte, N.C. But don’t let the Fast and the Furious-worthy premise mislead you — the situation’s being played for laughs, with some interesting comedy talent on board. Napoleon Dynamite helmer Jared Hess is directing, from a script that originated with Up All Night creator Emily Spivey. Read more after the jump.

They may be dumb but they’re not stupid. Nearly 20 years after its release, the 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber still remains a fan favorite. Quotes are regularaly thrown around, scenes referenced and a no-brainer sequel has long been discussed. Earlier this year, it seemed like the Farrelly Brothers were getting closer than ever, but then Jim Carrey dropped out of the film. The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To. Read more after the jump. Read More »
When Jeff Wadlow cast Jim Carrey in Kick-Ass 2, the movie went from geek anticipated property to mainstream legitimate. Carrey plays Colonel Stars (above), one of the many, many superheroes inspired by the actions of Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) in Matthew Vaughn’s first film. He’s the leader of Justice Forever, a superhero supergroup that Kick-Ass joins when Hit-Girl retires from the game. It’s a pivotal role in the film and Carrey’s interpretation of the major ass-kicker should be a sight to behold.
Kick-Ass 2 is currently filming aimed at a June 28, 2013 release and images of Carrey on set have leaked onto the internet. Check them out below. Read More »
