DR. SEUSS' HORTON HEARS A WHO!

JIM CARREY (Horton) recently wrapped the comedy “Yes Man,” directed by Peyton Reed. In the film, based on a memoir by British author Danny Wallace, Carrey stars as a man who decides to change his life by saying yes to absolutely everything that comes his way. Carrey will follow “Yes Man” with “A Christmas Carol,” an adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale that Robert Zemeckis wrote and will direct for Walt Disney Pictures. In the film Carrey will play Ebenezer Scrooge and the three ghosts that haunt him. Zemeckis will shoot the film using "performance capture/Disney digital 3-D" animation.

Carrey will then begin work on the Paramount Pictures’ feature “Ripley’s Believe it or Not!” for director Tim Burton. The film reunites Carrey with writer Steve Oedekerk (“Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls”). The film is scheduled for a 2009 release. Carrey has also signed on to star in “I Love You Phillip Morris,” a dark comedy that was written and will mark the directing debut of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the writing team behind "Bad Santa." Based on a book by Houston Chronicle crime reporter Steve McVicker, the fact-based film casts Carrey as Steven Russell, a married father whose exploits land him in the Texas criminal justice system. In prison he falls in love with his cellmate, who eventually is set free, leading Russell to escape from Texas prisons four times.

Last year, Carrey starred in the thriller “The Number 23,” for director Joel Schumacher. In 2005 Carrey starred opposite Tea Leoni in the highly successful comedy “Fun with Dick and Jane.” The film was directed by Dean Parisot (“Galaxy Quest”) and produced by Brian Grazer. In 2004 he starred in the Paramount Pictures’ film “Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events,” based on the children’s book series by Daniel Handler, as well as the critically acclaimed Focus Features’ drama “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

In 2003, he starred in the hugely successful Universal Pictures’ comedy “Bruce Almighty.” The film, which has made over $470 million dollars worldwide, was one of the highest grossing films of the year. “Bruce Almighty” also reunited Carrey with director Tom Shadyac (“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” & “Liar, Liar”) and writer Steve Oedekerk (“Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls”).

In 2001, Carrey starred in the Castle Rock feature “The Majestic,” directed by Frank Darabont and in 2000, he had the distinction of appearing in the year’s highest grossing film; the Universal Pictures’ release “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.”

In the summer of 2000, Carrey reunited with directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly for the 20th Century Fox 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 1999 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.
