Jim Carrey started to showcase his unique brand of physical comedy as a cast member of the classic sketch comedy show In Living Color. Highly expressive characters such as Vera De Milo and Fire Marshall Bill paved the way for one of his more memorable film roles, Stanley Ipkiss in The Mask.
Carrey recently spoke with Comicbook.com and discussed what it would take for him to come back for a sequel, and it’s not the more common answer given by many actors when discussing sequels. Check it out below.
“I don’t think in terms of sequels and stuff like that, I mean, this one [Sonic The Hedgehog] is kind of right for it because we have not evolved the character [Dr. Eggman] fully yet. The Mask I think, myself, you know, it would depend on a filmmaker. It depends on a filmmaker really. I don’t want to do it just to do it, but I would only do it if it was some crazy visionary filmmaker. Sure.”
Might I suggest, Taika Waititi? I think that would be a nice fit as Waititi could likely bring out the Jim Carrey of yesteryear and bring him back into the character of Ipkiss. Of course, this isn’t the only film in the franchise as the abysmal film Son of the Mask was released in 2005 much to the disappointment of viewers, so it would be nice to see the series get a bit redemption.
