Praise the movie gods! Jim Carrey is going back to comedy!
David Heyman, producer of Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix, confirmed this week that's he's collaborating on a film with the former Ace Ventura.
"I've got this film with Jim Carrey called Yes Man, which I hope will get into production in the fall," Heyman told MTV News.
After the disaster that was Carrey's thriller The Number 23, Yes Man â€" based on a book by Danny Wallace â€" will return the actor to the high-concept comedy realm that served him well in Liar, Liar and Bruce Almighty.
"It's about a man who finds himself very depressed, and is always saying no. When friends ask him out, he always says no," Heyman said of the script. "[The film will explore] what happens when he decides to say yes to every thing that comes his way."
When asked what the tone of the movie would be, Heyman insisted it would be old-school Carrey. Thank goodness.
"It's really funny," he said. "It's one of the funniest scripts I've read."
