Oedekerk Hired to Rehaul Tim Burton's "Ripley," Believe It or Not

by | December 18, 2006 | Comments

When Paramount shelved Tim Burton‘s "Ripley’s Believe It or Not" a few months back, some people thought the project was dead in the water. Well hey, apparently not.

Not only are Burton and Jim Carrey still attached to the project, but it looks like Paramount is eying a late-2008 production date. Plus they’ve hired comedy expert Steve Oedekerk to rejigger the screenplay originally written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.

From Variety: "Oedekerk, who’ll be paid a seven-figure fee, has long been a Carrey go-to-guy. They began collaborating on "In Living Color," and Oedekerk wrote and directed "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" and scripted "Bruce Almighty." Oedekerk most recently scripted the Tom Shadyac-directed "Evan Almighty," starring Steve Carell."
