Apparently There's An "Ace Ventura" Reboot In The Works And I Simply Must Know More
All righty, then.
So, if you grew up in the '90s, you know that Jim Carrey's Ace Ventura character is I-C-O-N-I-C.
From two films to a TV cartoon series that ran for three seasons, people truly seem to enjoy the infamous pet detective's adventures.
And today Deadline reported that the company behind the originals, Morgan Creek, is planning to reboot the franchise.
As far as format goes, Morgan Creek's president David Robinson said: "Because it's episodic in nature, about a pet detective, it also lends itself to a traditional single-camera series franchise.”
As for seeing Carrey don his signature Hawaiian shirt and brightly colored pants again, it's not outside of the realm of possibility.
"The company would welcome Jim Carrey to reprise one of his signature roles. The current concept eyed for an Ace Ventura reboot is a baton-handing,” they noted, going on to explain, "a long-lost son or daughter of Ace possibly showing up at his doorstep and taking over."
In a world of binge-watching, it'd definitely be awesome to see the premise re-imagined as a live-action TV show.
