Given that I Love You Phillip Morris appears to be in a perpetual state of limbo, we could very well go more than two years without a live-action Jim Carrey movie gracing the screen, following 2008’s Yes Man. But Hollywood has lined up a vast buffet of projects for the reliably bankable actor to choose from. There’s the Larry Charles comedy Pierre Pierre, the children’s book adaptation Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and a remake of the musical Damn Yankees, to name a few. Well, Summit Entertainment would like to dish up one more option.
According to Pajiba, the studio is recruiting Carrey for the Amy Talkington-scripted Under Cover, which centers on a recently divorced father who joins a “youthful cover band” to fund a custody battle against his ex-wife.
