Fox Studios is switching up ‘Apes’ and ‘Penguins.’ Scheduling movies sounds like running a damn, dirty zoo.
The first official look at Jim Carrey hanging out with penguins in ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins,’ the spiritual sequel to ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.’
When you’re adapting a famous museum of freaks into a movie, who better to star than a man once famous for talking out of his butt?
Jim Carrey was spotted on the set of Mr. Popper’s Penguins in New York City’s Central Park canoodling with none other than two penguins. He seems to be thoroughly unimpressed with their presence.

Are the Farrelly brothers about to escape development hell? Maybe. Twentieth Century Fox is taking over the brothers’ long-awaited modern day The Three Stooges adaptation, pulling the project from the clammy grip of the now-officially-bankrupt MGM.
The Three Stooges movie may be dead. At least, according to serious actor, Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Batman Forever). He shot down any hope of seeing him portray Curly in The Farrelly Brothers stab at the classic masochists. His main reason? Jim Carrey does not fat suit.
There's a new red band trailer for I Love You Phillip Morris. I guess you could consider it NSFW due to language, sexual situations, and cloud imagery. It's also NSFRedneckDad due to everything that happens in it. Jim Carrey stars as a man who explodes out of the closet and his suburban existence and goes to great lengths to fund his new lifestyle. Ewan McGregor co-stars as the titular Phillip Morris, who Carrey meets in prison.
All in all, it's a great trailer and the best look that we've had at the film yet. It's got the same brand of whimsy we saw in the trailers for Middle Men and Casino Jack. But don't hold that against it.
I Love You, Phillip Morris finally gets released in theaters December 3rd.
Check out the NSFW trailer after the jump…

Cast: Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor, Rodrigo Santoro, Leslie Mann

David O. Russell is in the running to direct the upcoming Jim Carrey comedy, Under Cover, 24 Frames is reporting. In the film, Carrey will play a divorced dad who joins a local "cover band to raise money to win the custody battle against his ex-wife."
This would mark Russell's first comedy since I Heart Huckabees, and would probably be less on the "existential" side, whatever the hell that means. But I'm sure the film will be a success as long as Russell is able to land a part for Lily Tomlin (First Showing).

Crazy white boys…
Larry Charles has signed on to direct the Jim Carrey comedy Pierre Pierre. If it sounds like it's about a Frenchman, that's because it is. The story follows a “self-indulgent, lazy, French nihilist who is transporting a stolen Mona Lisa from Paris to London.” Through the journey, “he comes to love his home country again.” I'm glad they went with the snooty, clichéd version of a Frenchman. I'm sure there will be an abundance of chain smoking and making fun of American tourists under the breath.
The screenplay has been around for awhile. It even ranked the 11th hottest screenplay in the 2008 Black List, an annual poll of people working in Hollywood who apparently know good writing. At least that's what their titles suggest. Larry Charles you know as a producer on "Seinfeld," "Curb Your Enthusiam," "Entourage," and the director of Borat, Bruno, and Religulous. At least three out of three of those movies are offensive to someone with morals. Let's hope Pierre Pierre continues the streak. (Deadline)
Looks like Ben Stiller and Noah Baumbach are no longer interested in adapting the childrens' book Mr. Popper's Penguins and no doubt making it depressing, so Fox is looking to director Mark Waters (Mean Girls) and Jim Carrey to fill their spots. Goodbye hipster soundtrack, hello funny faces!The LA Times says nothing is confirmed at this point, and that Owen Wilson and Jack Black are also being considered. Sounds to me like someone at Fox is just shouting out names and hoping two of them are available, interested, and not dealing with personal sh*t at the moment. Zack Galifianakis! Martin Scorsese! Cobb salad! At this point, the studio exec takes his lunch from the mail room guy and shoves him out of the conference room. (SlashFilm)

A new clip from Robert Zemeckis's A Christmas Carol has crash landed like your embarrassment of an uncle after a few too many eggnog cocktails. That's a compliment. To the movie. Your uncle's a mess.If you're not familiar with the Dickens classic, then don't watch, because for some reason the studio decided to put the ending online before the movie hits theaters. If you are familiar with it, then I encourage you to watch, if only to see how far Zemeckis's animated filmmaking has come since Polar Express, in which all the characters looked like they hailed from the Village of the Damned. But this time around, Scrooge and company actually seem like they have soul. Not James Brown level, or even on the level of your fat uncle when he busts out the soundtrack to The Commitments and tries to sing along, which only ends up getting the cats all hot and bothered. But it's a step in the right direction.
