When the Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller comedy Used Guys was canceled in 2006, it was because of budget concerns, given that the movie was set in a future in which Carrey and Stiller would be pleasure clones. But now Fox is ready to take the project on again, and somehow making the movie more of a romantic comedy is going to keep the budget in check.
Yeah, I don't understand it either. But according to Variety, Stiller is back on board, with Little Miss Sunshine directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton in it to helm and Reese Witherspoon apparently in mind for a lead female role. There's no mention of Carrey in the article, so either they saw Yes Man and wanted no part of what Carrey was offering, or his deal is still in the works.
Do you agree with me when I say Jim Carrey is over-rated?
