Jim Carrey has signed on to play the leading role in Summit Entertainment's Ricky Stanicky, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Steve Oedekerk (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls) is attached to direct.

The comedy centers on three male friends who have used an invented friend, Ricky Stanicky, for the past two decades as an excuse to explain their way out of sticky situations. When their spouses demand to meet Stanicky, they hire an actor to portray him.

In development for some time, James Franco was once attached to the project.

Carrey recently starred in the Warner Bros. comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. He can be seen coming up in Kick-Ass 2.
