Jim Carrey in Aleister Arcane
Jim Carrey is no stranger to darker material, but his next roles sounds like it could be terrific. With Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment producing and Eli Roth directing, the film adaption of IDW Comics “Aleister Aracane” is moving ahead with Carrey front and center.
The story centers on a group of children who befriend a bitter old man ruined and shunned by their parents. After his death, only they have the power to thwart the curse he has laid upon their town.
The comic book story focused on a local TV horror host Aleister Arcane, who’s forced off the air due to the wishes of parents in an Oklahoma community. In the wake of Arcane’s unplanned retirement, unexplained terror and horror beset the town.
With films such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Number 23, we know that Carrey is capable of darker and more serious roles, however this will be the first time he has attempted full on horror!
