Jim Carrey interested in ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’

HollywoodNews.com: Jim Carrey is looking to star in Mark Waters’ take on family novel “Mr. Popper’s Penguins.”

Rumors are that star-director team Ben Stiller and Noah Baumbach are no longer involved in the big screen version of the 1938 tome which focuses on a housepainter who receives two penguins, whose offspring are turned into a circus act. “Penguins” was written by Richard and Florence Atwater.

U.K.’s Empire has been following the development of the project.

Waters previous family credits include “The Spiderwick Chronicles” and “Freaky Friday.” “Hot Tub Time Machine” screenwriter Sean Anders and John Morris are busy working on the screenplay for “Penguins.”

The comedic actor’s recent film “I Love You Phillip Morris” was indefinitely shelved after its distributor Consolidated Pictures Group couldn’t scrape the funds together to release it.
