Jim Carrey new movie ‘True Crimes’ based on a real and truly bizarre murder mystery from Poland.
Update: True Crimes picked up by North American distribution.
“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities, Truth isn’t”. A quote by Mark Twain that definitely helps describe Jim Carrey’s new Polish/American thriller ‘True Crimes‘. The movie is based on a New York Times article ‘True Crime. A Postmodern Murder Mystery‘ written by David Grann in 2008 about a real and truly bizarre murder case from Poland.
The movie recounts the story of a small business owner who is found murdered four weeks after he was reported missing by his wife. Three years after the case goes cold. Police investigator Tadek (Jim Carrey) and his team discover a book where the author writes of a murder with eerie similarities.
The True Crimes screenplay was written by Jeremy Brock (Last King of Scotland). Brock’s screenplay will be headed by Greek director Alexandros Avranas (Miss Violence).
Carrey and his fellow stars Charlotte Gainsbourg (Kasia), Agata Kulesza (Marta) and Marton Csokas (Kozlow) recently finished filming on location in Krakow Poland. This will be Jim Carrey’s first return to a serious role since The Number 23 back in 2007.
Saban films have acquired True Crimes for North American distribution. The trailer and wider cinema release dates are still unknown (via Variety). Stay tuned for further updates.
