The 2 Ace Ventura motion pictures aren’t remembered notably fondly nowadays past how a lot enjoyable it’s to say “do not go in there” when exiting a room, however 1995’s Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls may’ve virtually been a bit cooler than what we ended up with. That’s as a result of famously hip dude Spike Jonze made a pitch to direct the movie, however star Jim Carrey rejected him as a result of he was only a no one on the time. Carrey shared that enjoyable truth on the Toronto Worldwide Movie Pageant, the place he was showing on a panel to debate Chris Smith’s documentary Jim And Andy: The Nice Past. That film is in regards to the making of Man On The Moon, and Jonze occurs to be a producer on it, so Carrey is taking the chance to gush about how a lot he’s needed to work with Jonze ever since rejecting him all these years in the past.
Right here’s his full quote, through Display Crush:
I’ve been eager to do one thing with Spike eternally. I used to be silly sufficient to show him all the way down to direct Ace 2, trigger I had no concept who he was. And he got here in and pitched every kind of shit, and he was about to take over the world and I didn’t understand it. I used to be like “I don’t know, this man’s new.” And I’ve been kicking myself ever since.
Jim And Andy was lately picked up by Netflix, and whereas it’s not the identical factor as Spike Jonze’s Ace Ventura 2, at the very least the 2 of them started working collectively ultimately.
