Jim Carrey's A Christmas Carol and Yes Man were box-office disappointments and indie gay romance I Love You Philip Morris is currently on the shelf, caught in a distribution quagmire. What should the 48-year-old comedian do? In my ongoing Inside Movies column, I take a look at his career, from Ace Ventura to a bunch of projects that are in stall mode, from Ripley's Believe It Or Not (with Chris Columbus at Paramount) and The Three Stooges (stuck in development at beleaguered MGM) to Damn Yankees --Todd Graff is doing a rewrite and is set to direct for producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

Jim Carrey's A Christmas Carol and Yes Man were box-office disappointments and indie gay romance I Love You Philip Morris is currently on the shelf, caught in a distribution quagmire. What should the 48-year-old comedian do? In my ongoing Inside Movies column, I take a look at his career, from Ace Ventura to a bunch of projects that are in stall mode, from Ripley's Believe It Or Not (with Chris Columbus at Paramount) and The Three Stooges (stuck in development at beleaguered MGM) to Damn Yankees --Todd Graff is doing a rewrite and is set to direct for producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
