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 Ratnerand 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.
