There’s been a good quantity of hypothesis of late that The Masks, which was launched in 1994 to a whopping $350 million worldwide gross, could also be in line for the sequel or reboot therapy. Should you’re having a tough time picturing a 58-year outdated Jim Carrey coming again to reprise the zany function in one other characteristic movie, first, allow us to direct you as soon as once more to Sonic the Hedgehog. Carrey’s efficiency within the current online game adaptation was completely classic, the form of over-the-top, unbridled madness that we have not seen out of the actor for a lot of, a few years. The outdated boy’s nonetheless bought it, is what we’re saying.

Second, the subject of revisiting The Masks has really been broached with Carrey not too long ago, and he did not shoot the thought down outright. Talking with ComicBook in January 2020, the funnyman mentioned, “I do not assume when it comes to sequels and stuff like that… [but] The Masks I believe, [for] myself, you recognize, it will rely on a filmmaker. It is dependent upon a filmmaker, actually. I do not need to do it simply to do it. However I might solely do it if it was some loopy visionary filmmaker. Certain.”

There you’ve it, people: Warner Bros. must get Taika Waititi on the horn proper now, and supply him precisely one-half of all the cash (with the opposite half going to Carrey) to write down and direct The Masks Returns. Even essentially the most highly-anticipated tasks have their naysayers nowadays, however we predict nearly everybody might agree that this might be nothing in need of ssssssmokin’.
