Reitman & Carrey Teaming For Pierre

Jason Reitman (“Juno”) is attached to direct and Jim Carrey will star in Fox Atomic’s comedy “Pierre Pierre” reports the trades.

Written by Edwin Cannistraci and Frederick Seton, the politically incorrect story, dealing with racism, sexism and Europeans, centers on a self-indulgent French nihilist (Carrey) who is entrusted to transport a stolen Mona Lisa and in the process falls back in love with his homeland.

“Pierre” will not be the Oscar-nominated Reitman’s next project however so no dates are yet set.
