Jim Carrey tries drama again with True Crimes, based on a New Yorker article

Looks like Jim Carrey is putting on his "serious" face again with the true crime film aptly titled TRUE CRIME. The film is "based on a New Yorker article about the homicide investigation of a slain business man and the novelist eventually convicted of the murder". In the press release it said the film was a crime thriller, but that synopsis could also be the plot of a fun dark comedy too. Especially with Carrey in the lead.

Honestly, I like Jim Carrey, even if he's had more hits-than-misses lately. I grew up with his comedies (like DUMB AND DUMBER, THE MASK, ACE VENTURA), but I probably prefer his dramatic turns (such as TRUMAN SHOW and ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) even more. So I'm definitely down for this. The film also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg (MELANCHOLIA, NYMPHOMANIAC: VOL I).

But what do you Schmoes think? You down for more serious Carrey? If so, what's your favorite role of his? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: I actually kinda liked NUMBER 23. Not sure it was a good movie, but it was an interesting failure at least.

Better than 'Fake' News, but 'Old' news.

Wow Damion, this news is two years old ! Did you guys miss the news about 'True Crimes' premiering at the Warsaw Film Festival back in October? And how Jim Carrey couldn't be there because of the things going on in his personal life? And he gives a performance like never seen before when it comes to serious Carrey? And that the movie got mixed reviews?

Anyway, I think Jim Carrey still is one of the best actors around and I'll watch him in anything. ;) Very curious about his silent little

Anyway, I think Jim Carrey still is one of the best actors around and I'll watch him in anything. ;) Very curious about his silent little part in 'The Bad Batch' this summer and how the reactions will be on 'True Crimes' this winter.

Even though he shat on his own film, he was terrific in Kick-Ass 2. IMO his best comedic performance was "Cable Guy", and best dramatic was a draw between "Man On The Moon" & "Truman Show".

This is pretty old news

I'm fairly certain the movie is already completed and just got picked up for distribution. That aside, after Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Truman Show, I'll give any Jim Carrey drama a chance.
