Reitman And Carrey Team Up For French Farce Pierre Pierre

by | 06 March 2008

Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman and Hollywood funnyman Jim Carrey have been confirmed for upcoming comedy Pierre Pierre.

Canadian-born Reitman, who received an Academy award nod for acclaimed teen pregnancy movie Juno, is in line to produce and direct the comedy.

Pierre Pierre, described as a "politically incorrect story" by the Hollywood Reporter and Variety, is about a disillusioned Frenchman (Carrey) tasked with smuggling the Mona Lisa out of the country.

The film is not the next project for either Reitman or Carrey, who was last seen on the big screen in psychological thriller The Number 23.

On Reitman's schedule is a remake of The Taking of Pelham 123, with John Travolta and Denzel Washington replacing Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw, and Megan Fox-starring teen-horror film Jennifer's Body.

Carrey meanwhile is lending his vocal talents to Dr Seuss's Horton Hears a Who and starring in Robert Zemeckis' Christmas Carol.

He can also be seen later this year in Yes Man, the big-screen adaptation of UK author Danny Wallace's book of the same name.
