It's Carrey, Believe It Or Not

Funnyman JIM CARREY is set to play newspaper columnist-turned-oddities curator ROBERT RIPLEY in a new TIM BURTON film.

The director's fans expected longtime Burton collaborator JOHNNY DEPP to land the role in the new movie, but Carrey will go back in time to play the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum founder.

The new film will focus on Ripley's search for the world's greatest oddities.
