Ace Ventura 3: Carrey Not Included

by | August 15, 2006 | Comments

Remember what happened when someone tried to do a "Dumb & Dumber" sequel without Jim Carrey? How about when they slapped together a Carrey-deficient sequel to "The Mask"? You think those would be a pair of solid lessons learned right there, eh? Guess again. Here comes a Carrey-free "Ace Ventura 3."

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Morgan Creek has begun the detective work on a kooky cold case. The production company has hired Jeff Sank and brothers Jason and Justin Heimberg to write a third installment of the hit franchise "Ace Ventura." The two previous "Ventura" comedies — 1994’s "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and the following year’s "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" — grossed more than $180 million domestically and helped establish Jim Carrey as one of the highest-paid comedy actors in Hollywood. The latest pet project is expected to center on the eccentric detective’s son, who steps into his father’s shoes to take over the family business."

Ooh boy, the "eccentric son sequel" routine. Let’s hope this one’s as good as "Son of the Pink Panther."
