With The Mask having recently returned to its dark roots in the comic-book I Pledge Allegiance to The Mask series, now comes some intriguing news about a possible new big-screen outing for the IP.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Jim Carrey has revealed that he’d be open to the idea of at least discussing a new The Mask movie.
As the star of the 1994 film explained, “It would depend on a filmmaker. I don’t want to do it just to do it, but I would only do it if it was some crazy visionary filmmaker.”
His role as Stanley Ipkiss in The Mask earned Carrey his first Golden Globe nomination, and he was instantly approached to return for a sequel. The actor later revealed that he turned down a $10 million payday for a follow-up picture, as this was at the time when Jim Carrey decided not to do any sequels following his outing in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.
Since then, Carrey’s stance on sequels has obviously changed, with 2014 seeing him back in the Lloyd Christmas saddle for Dumb and Dumber To.
Of course, there was a sequel to The Mask – Jamie Kennedy starring in the utterly awful Son of the Mask in 2005.
As ever, expect more on any potential new The Mask movie if and when anything more comes of this.
