We don’t hear a lot from Jim Carrey these days, although he has remained sporadically active. So when we do, it’s surprising to us that he’s not taking on a project of the sort that made him famous, such as a wacky or a satirical comedy. No, he’s actually taking another turn at a. The last time we recall him trying this was the critically panned The Number 23, which wasn’t really all that bad.
This time around, Carrey takes on the role of detective Tadek in the Alexandros Avranas-directed film Dark Crimes (formerly titled True Crimes). From the synopsis below, the film from the executive producers of The Revenant and Black Mass sounds a lot like a television crime drama, maybe Castle or something of that ilk.
Have a look at the synopsis below and keep an eye out for the trailer, which appears to have not yet been revealed. Dark Crimes will be released exclusively on DIRECTV April 19, 2018, and in theaters and On Demand May 11, 2018.
Dark Crimes Synopsis:
When police officer Tadek (Carrey) finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlov, Tadek begins to track Kozlov and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex-club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg). As his obsession with Kozlov grows, Tadek descends into a deadly underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking, deadly truth.
