Jim Carrey Escorts "Sober Buddies"

June 30, 2007 (4:38 am) GMT
Funnyman Jim Carrey is poised to both star in and produce Universal Pictures' new comedy "Sober Buddies."

Compiling a handful of projects in his film resume, has added one more flick into the list entitled "" which he is set to both topline and produce for Universal Pictures.

Story revolves around a hard-partying software executive who is assigned a court-appointed Sober Buddy, played by Carrey, to keep him under control during a critical business trip to Las Vegas. All goes well until Carrey's character loses control and falls off the wagon.

Onboard to pen the script is Andrew Kurtzman with Scott Stuber, Mary Parent, and Michael Peyser all accompanying Carrey to produce. Kurtzman initially hatched the comedy as a pitch alongside Principal Entertainment's Danny Sherman and brought it to Carrey, who afterwards took it to Stuber. Stuber then set it at Universal under the duo's overall deal at the studio.
