Filming of Ripley in early 200805 Feb 2007

At a recent press call for "The Number 23" Jim Carrey finally spoke out about the delay on "Ripley's Believe it or Not".
"The project is back on", "It’s going to be wonderful," Jim said. "It’s just an incredible world to open up. He was a very much the champion of the underdog and people who were a little bit different and freakish."
Also known as quite a fashionable man, with plenty of lovely ladies on his arm, the film may address Ripley's romantic side too. "He was about celebrating life. He was about proving its special-ness."
Regarding the question mark over the film's ever changing financial status Jim clarified his position.
"Financing never went away. We just got kind of close to going into production and I just felt like the script wasn't quite where it could have been. I had a lot of ideas that would have facilitated a change in plan, a change of approach to the production of it so I just thought it could be more than it was."
Filming for Ripley's is expected to begin late 2007 early 2008.
