Jim Carrey Would
Return For
Another Ace
Ventura Film Under
One Condition
As Hollywood continues to obsess over legacy sequels and reboots, some find it surprising that Jim Carrey hasn't been tapped for a third film in the "Ace Ventura" franchise. In fact, Carrey is more than ready to return as the bumbling detective, as long as the right person is in charge.
In an interview with E! News, Carrey revealed that he would only return to the "Ace Venture" franchise for a threequel if an auteur or fearless filmmaker was involved. “If Chris Nolan came to me and said 'I want to make Ace Ventura real and I want to do something, you know, something more interesting...' then I might listen," the actor said.
This is a consistent sentiment by Carrey, who expressed a similar argument as his one condition for doing a direct sequel to "The Mask." It's not surprising that the actor brought up "Interstellar" helmer Nolan for the gig because the duo worked closely together to develop a Howard Hughes biopic in the early 2000s, which was eventually scrapped.
