Thursday, July 26, 2007 Actor Jim Carrey is set to star in upcoming Warner Bros. flick Yes Man. The film is based on comedian Danny Wallace's 2005 novel by the same name.
The 45-year-old actor will play the lead role as a man who spent a half year 'saying yes where once would have said no', to make his life more interesting and positive. The film script, which was written by 'Fun With Dick and Jane' co-writer Nicholas Stoller, will be rewritten, Variety magazine reports.
'Yes Man' will be directed by Peyton Reed and will begin production in October. David Heyman and Richard Zanuck will produce the film, which is set for a release in 2009. The 'Mask' actor will start shooting the film early next year with his other projects that include Disney's Robert Zemeckis-directed A Christmas Carol.
