Jim Carrey & Cameron Diaz Quit "A Little Game"

by | October 4, 2006 | Comments

Not long ago we shared the news that Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz would be reuniting to star in a comedy called "A Little Game," which focuses on a couple who pretend to split up … just to see how people react. And yesterday both actors bailed on the movie.

From Variety: "The Focus Features romantic comedy "A Little Game" imploded Tuesday with the abrupt exits of Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz and director Gabriele Muccino just a couple of weeks before its Oct. 19 start date. Focus, though, is still hoping that studio topper James Schamus, an accomplished scribe in his own right, can keep the project going. Schamus is making a last-ditch attempt to nail a rewrite and set a new director to salvage the film and perhaps Carrey’s participation in it.

"Game" is the third straight Carrey vehicle that failed to make it to the starting gate after "Used Guys" was unplugged by Fox and "Ripley’s Believe It or Not!" was postponed at Paramount. Both actors joined the project — an adaptation of a French play about a couple plagued by breakup rumors — in July, subject to a rewrite that would address problems each thesp had with the third act. Schamus helped guide Muccino through that rewrite, but the resulting draft took the comedy in a direction that prompted the actors to bail."
