Jim Carrey Signs On to Be a Yes Man

Continues the comedian's string of "high concept" comedies...

by | July 25, 2007 | Comments

Anyone who just got done sitting through the Number 23 DVD is probably wondering what happened to the silly Jim Carrey. Well, it looks like he’ll be back in Peyton Reed’s Yes Man.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comedy is about a guy who decides to say “yes” to absolutely every question that comes his way. Obviously all sorts of comedic hijinks will inevitably ensue.

The project is based on a book by Danny Wallace that WB acquired a few years back. No word on who’ll be on adaptation duty, but you’ll probably remember Peyton Reed from flicks like Bring It On, The Break-Up, and the rather underrated Down With Love.

More on this “high concept” comedy when it hits the wires. Sounds like a potentially amusing project though.
