Universal Plans Carrey-Led “Almighty” Sequel

Jim Carrey is being eyed to reprise his role from “Bruce Almighty” in another sequel in that series at Universal Pictures says The Press Associaton.

In the 2003 original, Carrey played TV news reporter Bruce Nolan who is offered the opportunity to be God for a week.

The 2007 sequel/spin-off “Evan Almighty” followed Bruce’s former colleague Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) with a Noah’s Ark inspired riff.

Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel are penning the follow-up. As the entire project is still in early stages, there’s no word if Morgan Freeman would return to play God, or if Jennifer Aniston would reprise her girlfriend role from the original.
