Ace is coming back! Well sort of.
During a retrospective about Morgan Creek Entertainment, which produced the first two films, they broke news that a third iteration of Ace Ventura is currently in development. The script is currently being penned by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, who wrote last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog.
“We’re pretty excited about our franchise developments with Exorcist and the Ace Ventura franchise…” the company said in an interview. “During COVID, audiences have been in love and are thrilled to have beloved characters brought back with new stories. Ace Ventura will see a new day at Amazon as a major motion-picture/theatrical with the Sonic the Hedgehog writers.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Jim Carrey will be returning for round three. However, seeing as how Carrey recently worked with Casey and Miller on Sonic, maybe there’s still hope that he’ll come back!
