Universal Creating Bruce Almighty Sequel for Jim Carrey

by at . Comments

Hot Tub Time Machine screenwriters Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel have been hired to pen a script for a sequel to the 2003 film Bruce Almighty. Jim Carrey would be back to star -- no word whether Jennifer Aniston would return -- as a man who learns the power of God comes with a high price.

Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty

The first Bruce Almighty followed Carrey’s news reporter as he grappled with his career and relationship woes. Suddenly, God (Morgan Freeman) appears and shows him that being God is not the easiest thing in the world, despite what Bruce may think. Carrey gets God’s powers and at first uses them for our humor, but then learns that great power has a great price.

Steve Carell appeared in the follow-up film, entitled Evan Almighty, which failed to find the same audience power as Bruce Almighty. Stay tuned for more as Movie Fanatic, for one, would love to see Carrey reprise his Bruce Almighty role.

Bruce Almighty Quotes

God: Grace. You want her back?
Bruce: No. I want her to be happy, no matter what that means. I want her to find someone who will treat her with all the love she deserved from me. I want her to meet someone who will see her always as I do now, through Your eyes.
God: Now THAT'S a prayer.

God is a mean kid sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass, and I'm the ant. He could fix my life in five minutes if He wanted to, but he'd rather burn off my feelers and watch me squirm.
