Carrey likes Beaver?

May. 1, 2009by: Mike Sampson

Kyle Killen's script for THE BEAVER generated a lot of buzz late last year when it shot to the top of The Black List, a list of the best unproduced screenplays. The story of a man who keeps a beaver puppet on his hand and treats it like an actual person, THE BEAVER began making the rounds and quickly had Steve Carell attached to star. But now Carell has dropped out of the starring role for unknown reasons. Luckily the project has its fair share of supporters and Jim Carrey is the latest A-list comedy star to attach himself to the script. The Hollywood Reporter says that Carrey loves the script and the producers really want Carrey but the deal won't be signed until a director comes onboard. One director that's apparently eyeballing the film is Jodie Foster. While I appreciate her legacy as an actress, she hasn't directed a film in over 12 years. What about Jody Hill? He might not be too keen on directing a film he didn't have a hand in writing but it might be worth a shot...

Extra Tidbit: Carrey's currently stuffing his face with ice cream and doughnuts to gain weight for THE THREE STOOGES.

Jody Hill is a funny dude. He knows how to make funny movies, i mean, it's a totally different kind of comedy than what you usually see Seth Rogen, and the rape scene wasn't even that bad. and Eastbound & Down is a funny show. He only directed two films, it takes time. I'm all for Jody Hill, if Jody Hill has a say in the script, i don't think Jim Carrey will fare well with his kind of writing and/or directing.

yes! That Jody Hill.

Oy...the jokes I could make...

I won't make them, though. I'm much too ladylike.

Anyway, I'm a big Carrey fan so this is splendid news.

pu-lease

Jody Hill? You mean the hack who has a second-rate HBO series that just barely got renewed and 2 box office bombs to his credit? That Jody Hill? The one who doesn't understand the definition of rape? The one who has only 1 gag in his bag of tricks (idiot turns out to be deadly and capable, and capable people turn out to be idiots). That Jody Hill? Why? Because he's your buddy?

Sorry, the man is a terrible, terrible filmmaker.
