Morgan Creek Entertainment said in an interview that Ace Ventura 3 is in development at Amazon Prime Video. Sonic The Hedgehog writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller are involved.
Evan Peters is rumored to be taking over the mantle as the new Ace Ventura, playing the son of the famous pet detective.
“We’re pretty excited about our franchise developments with Exorcist and the Ace Venture franchise…” Morgan Creek said in a statement to Park Circus. “During COVID, audiences have been in love and are thrilled to have beloved characters brought back with new stories. Ace Ventura will see a new day at Amazon as a major motion-picture/theatrical with the Sonic the Hedgehog writers.”
Interest in Ace Ventura (and a lot of other ’80s and ’90s comedy films) has surged in the last few years – especially in 2020, where new content was thin. Jim Carrey helped spark some of that renewed fan enthusiasm after doing some Ace Ventura impressions while promoting Sonic The Hedgehog and while playing Joe Biden for Saturday Night Live. Morgan Creek also pointed out that the popularity of the Ace Ventura Facebook Page has surged in the last year.
