Jim Carrey will re-team with Steve Oedekerk on the comedy Ricky Stanicky at Summit Entertainment. It was a well thought out decision. Carrey has been orbiting this one for about a year, and finally came aboard when his Ace Ventura: Pet Detective cohort Steve Oedekerk signed on. The comedy is about a group of guys who as teens created a pretend scapegoat, Ricky Stanicky, to blame things on. It is a perennial success, until their wives insist on meeting Stanicky. Carrey, last seen in Burt Wonderstone, has been taking to the web to make a Hee Haw parody about gun control that has driven the conservatives crazy. Pretty clever stuff, if you ask me.
