Jim Carrey Looking at Heist Comedy 'Loomis Fargo'

Jim Carrey might be busy filming scenes for Kick-Ass 2 at the moment, but he’s already contemplating his next project, which could be a Southern comedy co-written by Danny McBride. 
According to Variety, the rubber-faced performer is circling the lead role in Loomis Fargo, a heist comedy based on actual events about four idiotic Southerners who swindle $17 million out of an armed Loomis Fargo truck. The plot finds a former Loomis Fargo employee teaming with his girlfriend – a current employee – and a crafty friend who helps them pull off the job. No idea yet whom Carrey would play, but adding him to the mix would be a benefit.  
Here’s the better part: The trade says that McBride’s screenplay could be directed by Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, who last helmed Gentlemen Broncos back in 2009. Maybe McBride could join Carrey in the comedy? That would help move things along. 
Heist movies are a blast, and comedic heist movies have an extra bite to them. Carrey’s pending films all seem interesting, from the Kick-Ass sequel to a possible follow up to Dumb and Dumber. Will Fargo follow? We shall see.
