Universal Pictures has found one of the producers and the star of one of their next films all in the same person.
Jim Carrey is set to star in Sober Buddies, a comedy which he will also produce. Stuber/Parent’s Scott Stuber and Mary Parent along with Michael Peyser will also produce the film. Andrew Kurtzman is writing the script and will executive produce.
Sober Buddies tells the story about a hard-partying software executive who seems to have a bit of a small drinking problem. Alright, it’s a huge drinking problem so he has been assigned a court-appointed sober buddy to keep him under control for a critical business trip to Las Vegas. The plan is working just fine until the sober buddy (Carrey) falls off the wagon and is no longer quite so sober.
No release date or even possible start of production date has been set yet but we’ll get more to you as we can.
