Jim Carrey to return as Ace Ventura Pet Detective?
The company behind the original movies indicated a third instalment in the Ace Ventura franchise might be in the works
Jim Carrey’s Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the comedy film which was released in 1994, might get a sequel. The upcoming project will be the third film in the franchise as Carrey reprised the eccentric animal detective in the 1995 sequel Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Reportedly, there's a possibility Carrey would return as Ventura.
The franchise went on to spawn an animated series spin-off and a direct-to-video standalone, 2009's Ace Ventura Jr.: Pet Detective, but now reports suggest studio bosses are planning to bring back the popular character for a new big-screen project.
Officials at production firm Morgan Creek, the company behind the original movies, have not directly addressed the claims, but they have indicated the news is true by posting a link to the article on Twitter, alongside eye emojis and the hashtag #AceVentura3.
However, Carrey was previously said to have ruled out a return as Ventura, according to his When Nature Calls co-star Tommy Davidson.
