The decade of the 2010s is well and truly over and to start 2020 well, how about a nasty blow of old? The Mask, the cult comedy, will celebrate this year … its 26 years old. It was in 1994 that we discovered the hilarious Stanley Ipkiss, The Mask or even Sancho de Cuba.
The Mask 2 starring Jim Carrey could finally be reality
A real hit at the time, the film made it possible to dedicate Jim Carrey to the time and to introduce Cameron Diaz to the eyes of the general public. A film with cult replicas carried by the completely crazy performance of the comedian, also made popular for his role asAce Ventura. And more than a quarter of a century later, absolute The Mask fans have only one wish… that a sequel is coming soon.
There was one in 2005, called The Son of the Mask, but without Jim Carrey. The result: the feature film was a huge box office failure and can be considered one of the biggest chicks in cinema. But for some time, a rumor keeps swelling within the vast halls of Hollywood: Warner Bros would think about relaunching the franchise with a female reboot, but especially a sequel where the return of Jim Carrey would be highly hoped for.

A news that may have made some fans scream with joy, but we still have to convince Jim Carrey himself. And the comedian’s latest statements could create even more hysteria among fans … Asked by the site ComicBook a few days before the release of Sonic le film, where he camps the Dr. Robotnik, the 58-year-old actor is more than ready to be part of the adventure … but on one condition:
“I don’t think in terms of a sequel or things like that, I mean, Sonic, The Movie is good because we haven’t fully evolved the character yet. [Dr. Robotnik]. Regarding The Mask, I think it will depend on the director. I don’t want to do it to do it. But I would be ready to go there alongside a visionary director “
The message is therefore launched and the mission of Warner Bros. seems all mapped out to launch the production of The Mask 2 : find the director with the right profile and visionary ideas to convince Jim Carrey. Some ideas among you?
