Jim Carrey Wants Some Me Time


Jim Carrey is looking to become a house husband in comedy Me Time for 20th Century Fox, reports Variety.

Principato-Young is producing with Carrey. Fox picked up the spec script from writing duo Ian Roberts and Jay Martel to develop into a feature for Carrey to topline.

The story revolves around a writer penning a book about his great-great-grandmother, a frontier woman. When his pregnant wife has to go on bed rest, leaving him to care for the house and their other child, his confidence is shaken as he reads his ancestor’s diary, in which she describes raising a family, plowing the fields and taming the wild environs.

Carrey also has Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, to be directed by Tim Burton, on his plate. Paramount recently hired Steve Oedekerk to rewrite the script and his take is due to be delivered in the next couple of weeks.
