Alexandros Avranas Jim Carrey Dark Crimes

Jim Carrey has returned to the dramatic side of his career with director Alexandros Avranas' DARK CRIMES, a film inspired by an article, written by David Grann and published in The New Yorker in 2008, about a true crime case in Poland.

Written by Jeremy Brock, the film stars Carrey as 

a police officer named Tadek, who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow. As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker, his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth.

Marton Csokas plays Kozlow, with Charlotte Gainsbourg as his mysterious girlfriend.

DARK CRIMES will be available for viewing exclusively through DirecTV as of April 19th, with a limited theatrical and wider VOD release following on May 18th.

With the film set to hit DirecTV in just one week, a trailer has been released online and can be seen below. I'm not quite sure what to think of this one or of Carrey's casting in it (or maybe I'm just too haunted by the disappointment of the similarly dark THE NUMBER 23), but I'm willing to give it a chance.
