Jim Carrey takes a turn towards a much darker side in director Joel Schumacher’s (8MM, Phone Booth, Falling Down) upcoming thriller The Number 23. After the hilarious Fun with Dick and Janeand the kid-friendly Lemony Snicket, he again shows his chameleon-like ability to tackle all genres.
In Number 23, Carrey plays a man obsessed with a book that appears to be based on his life but ends with a murder that hasn’t hapened yet. His obsession also begins to take its toll on his relationship with his wife, played by Virginia Madsen (Sideways).
See the first trailers from The Number 23 below. It hits theaters on February 23, 2007.
