Jim Carrey is in talks to star in the indie drama “True Crimes.”
Based on the New Yorker article by David Grann, the story follows a murder investigation that turns to clues found in a book about an eerily similar crime. Alexandros Avranas is directing; Brett Ratner and John Cheng are producing with David Gerson (“Skiptrace”), while “Ida” producer Ewa Puszczynska will serve as co-producer. Jeremy Brock penned the script.
Carrey was last seen in Universal and Red Granite’s “Dumb and Dumber To.” He is repped by WME.
