They always say comedy is hard, but this latest rumour from the usually reliable long-time source 'Joe S' about a new Jim Carrey comedy that's pegged to be one of the biggest releases this Christmas paints a picture of just how difficult it can be: "The saga of one of the most overlong comedy feature shoots in recent memory continues. "Fun with Dick and Jane", which filmed for 114 days of principal photography earlier this year (some 25 days over schedule), is now back for more.
Apparently 60 PAGES of re-writes were done (since "whittled down" to 40), and five weeks have been allotted to film them (although one source says that it is a sure bet to go over). The ending is on tap to be altered too, and "the studio wants more Jim Carrey over the top" type stuff according to a source.
The next leg of filming is scheduled to begin this week in Los Angeles."
Thanks again to 'Joe S'.
