Morgan Creek has hired Jeff Sank and the Heimberg brothers to write "Ace Ventura Jr." screenplay.
Getting serious to bring out the third installment of the comedy hit franchise "Ace Ventura" to the surface, Morgan Creek has positively assigned Jeff Sank along with brothers Jason and Justin Heimberg to pen the script of the project titled "Ace Ventura Jr.."
Though details of the film's plot has not yet been revealed, the picture is expected to take center on Ace Ventura's son who follows the trails of his father and takes over the family business. Meanwhile, it is still unclear whether Jim Carrey, who played Ventura in the two previous installments, is back to fill in the role once again.
Sank and The Heimbergs recently teamed up on "Unnatural History", a Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer production. They also penned together "Iguanas" for John Williams and Vanguard Entertainment.
