Jim Carrey’s ‘Under Cover’ May Land Director David O. Russell
Wednesday, September 22 by

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).
