BRUCE ALMIGHTY

Bruce Almighty reunites JIM CARREY (Bruce) with director Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective & Liar, Liar) and writer Steve Oedekerk (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls).

Carrey recently wrapped production on the drama Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind opposite Kate Winslet. In the film, Carrey stars as Joel, a man who is stunned to discover that his girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had her memories of their tumultuous relationship erased. Out of desperation, he contacts the inventor of the process, Dr. Howard Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson), to have Clementine removed from his own memory. But as Joel's memories progressively disappear, he begins to rediscover their earlier passion. From deep within the recesses of his brain, Joel attempts to escape the procedure. As Dr. Mierzwiak and his crew (Mark Ruffalo, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood) chase him through the maze of his memories, it's clear that Joel just can't get Clementine out of his head. The film, written by Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation) and directed by Michael Gondry (Human Nature) is scheduled for a fall 2003 release.

Carrey will begin production this fall on the film Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events based on the children's book series by Daniel Hadler. In the film, to be directed by Brad Silberling (Casper), Carrey will star as the evil Count Olaf. It is tentatively scheduled for a release during the 2004 holiday season. Carrey also recently signed on to make his animated feature film debut in the computer animated project Over The Hedge. In the film, Carrey will provide the voice for a mischievous con artist raccoon named R.J., opposite co-star Garry Shandling, who will voice a sensitive turtle named Verne. The film follows the story of what happens to Verne and R.J. when a suburban housing development encroaches on their home in the forest. Based on a popular comic strip of the same name, the movie is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2005.

Carrey was last seen on screen starring in the 2001 feature The Majestic, directed by Frank Darabont. In 2000 Carrey had the distinction of appearing in the year's highest grossing film; the Universal Pictures' release Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas. He was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category of "Best Actor in a Motion Picture -Musical or Comedy" for his portrayal of the Grinch, as well as a People's Choice Award in the category of "Favorite Motion Picture Star in a Comedy." He also won an MTV Movie Award in the category of "Best Villain" for the film.

In the summer of 2000, Carrey reunited with directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly for the comedy Me, Myself And Irene, for which he received an MTV Movie Award nomination in the category of "Best Comedic Performance" for his portrayal of a split personality in the film. He also won the Golden Globe in 2000 for "Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy" for his portrayal of Andy Kaufman in the film Man On The Moon. He had won a Golden Globe Award the previous year for "Best Actor in a Motion Picture -Drama" for his role in the critically acclaimed film The Truman Show. The 1999 Golden Globe win marked Carrey's first award for a dramatic role. He also received a Golden Globe nomination in 1997 for "Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy" for Liar, Liar, the same category in which he was nominated in 1995 for The Mask. In 2000, he was named "Male Star of the Year" at ShoWest.

Born January 17, 1962 in Newmarket, Ontario, Jim Carrey knew by age three that show business was in his blood.
