Ace Ventura 3 planned with possible return of Carrey

Actor Jim Carrey's hit movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is reportedly set for a new sequel, more than two decades after its last instalment.

Carrey scored his breakout movie role as the eccentric animal detective in the 1994 comedy, and he reprised the part for Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls in 1995, reports

The franchise went on to spawn an animated series spin-off and a direct-to-video standalone, 2009's Ace Ventura Jr.: Pet Detective, but now reports suggest studio bosses are planning to bring back the popular character for a new big-screen project. Sources tell there's also a possibility Carrey would return as Ventura.

Officials at production firm Morgan Creek, the company behind the original movies, have not directly addressed the claims, but they have indicated the news is true by posting a link to the article on Twitter, alongside eye emojis and the hashtag #AceVentura3.

Carrey was previously said to have ruled out a return as Ventura, according to his When Nature Calls co-star Tommy Davidson.
