Booze News: Jim Carrey to fall off the wagon for Universal

>> Sunday, July 1, 2007

According to Variety, Jim Carrey is set to star in Sober Buddies, a new comedy for Universal. The basic premise of the film, as described in the trade, involves "a hard-partying software exec assigned a court-appointed Sober Buddy to keep him under control during a critical business trip to Las Vegas. A perfect plan falls apart when the Sober Buddy (Carrey) falls off the wagon."

The movie is currently in the writing stage, so it may be months or years before actual shooting begins. A lot can happen in that time--from rewrites to casting changes to the project being shelved. However, at this stage in the game, this picture sounds right up my alley. I'll keep an eye on it and keep you informed as it progresses.

It's got to be so weird being Jim Carrey.
