Jim Carrey has revealed that he would be open to discussions about returning to some of his earlier roles, should the opportunity for a sequel arise. Jim claimed that he is regularly asked about his movies The Mask and Ace Ventura by fans eager to see him return as the characters.
Carrey said, "I think I should be a part of one of my sequels, finally. I am in the mood to revisit a couple of things that I did. Kids are coming up to me about The Mask and Ace and all these things constantly. You know, [it's a new] generation [of fans]." Jim did do a sequel to the 1995 hit Ace Ventura and there was talk of a sequel to The Mask after its 1994 release, however Jim Carrey refused involvement so the plan was scrapped.
Jim also admitted that he would definitely be interested in working on sequels to the movies Dumb and Dumber and Bruce Almighty. Carrey explained, "We're talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about." Jim Carrey can next be seen on the big screen, when his latest movie Mr. Popper's Penguins hits the US theatres on July 17. However, UK audiences will have to wait until August 5 to see the film.
