Larry Charles’s $30 million comedy “Pierre Pierre” starring Jim Carrey has announced it will begin shooting this Summer in Europe, primarily in Germany reports Screen Daily.
Carrey plays a self-indulgent French nihilist who steals the Mona Lisa in the hope of selling it off so he can finally move out of his parents house. Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton penned the script.
Foresight Unlimited, Mandalay Vision and Lago Films have all come onboard the project and have already closed pre-sale deals in numerous countries. The inclusion of a strong supporting cast now in talks has seen the film’s budget jump by 50%.
Marco Mehlitz, Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, Matthew Rhodes and Cathy Schulman will all produce.
