Affirmative: Carrey says 'Yes' to WB
EmptyJim Carrey has said yea not nay to "Yes Man," a Warner Bros. Pictures comedy being directed by Peyton Reed. David Heyman and Richard Zanuck are producing.
Based on a memoir by British author Danny Wallace that the studio picked up in April 2005, the story centers on a man who decides to change his life by saying yes to absolutely everything that comes his way. The practice leads him on a series of unexpected comedic adventures that turn his life upside down.
Greg Silverman is overseeing for the studio.
Carrey is looking to shoot "Yes" in October and then segue to "A Christmas Carol," which Robert Zemeckis is directing for Walt Disney Pictures. Carrey is seeking to do a third movie before any possible talent strike but has not chosen a project.
The WGA's film and TV contract expires Oct. 31; SAG's similar pact expires June 30. Agents have been trying to line up two or three projects for their clients before any work stoppage connected to those negotiations occurs.
Carrey's next film, the animated "Horton Hears a Who," will be released in March.
Carrey is repped by CAA, Eric Gold and Jimmy Miller and attorney Deborah Klein.
