No, Jim Carrey is not lowering his price tag. It would appear that he is is taking on the role of Steve Austen, the Bionic man. Superhero Hype reports:
Dimension Films will adapt the 1970s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man for a feature comedy to star Jim Carrey and to be directed by Todd Phillips. Phillips will team with his (“Old School”) writing partner Scot Armstrong to script a vehicle for Carrey to play the bionic man.
I am not sure how I feel about this. Apparently they are making the movie into more of a comedy rather than the action adventure the origninal TV series was. Over the years Carrey’s over the top aminated humour has worn a little thin on me, and I have enjoyed him more in his more dramatic roles (Truman Show, Majestic)
