Jim Carrey starred within the 2003 movie Bruce Almighty which was written by Steven Koren, Mark O’Keefe and Steve Oedekerk. The movie was a hit on the field workplace and will’ve had a sequel with Carrey reprising his function however it ended up not getting made.

In an interview with SyFy Wire, Koren and O’Keefe recalled that on the premiere of Bruce Almighty they bumped into producer Michael Bostick and pitched him an concept for a sequel. The follow-up story can be known as “Brucifer” and would contain Carrey’s Bruce buying Satan’s powers.

“[Carrey’s] supervisor and him needed to do Brucifer,” Koren stated. “We went in and pitched it, however it by no means fairly labored out, as a result of it was in a while … It would have been one other large film and I don’t suppose they needed to do it. It simply didn’t work out for some purpose, however lots of people liked it, together with Jim.”

The screenwriters defined that Bruce’s spouse Grace, performed by Jennifer Aniston, would’ve died with Koren saying, “You are inclined to lose your religion when the world appears unfair, and that’s what obtained him. It got here from a critical place, however we have been gonna write it in a really pleasant manner. We actually didn’t wish to depress individuals. So I believe that scared [the studio] just a little bit, however to Jim’s credit score, he completely understood that we have been going to make an enormous comedy and thought all people would join with it.”

Bruce would’ve used his satanic powers to convey Grace again to life. Koren stated that when he was pitching Carrey, he was “laughing his ass off as a result of we had her come again as Jennifer Aniston. He stated, ‘No, she has to appear to be a zombie first after which we’ll make her lovely once more.’ We thought that was good.”

The concept for Brucifer was pitched to the studio in 2010 however it was handed on. By that point, the studio had already produced Evan Almighty in 2007, which didn’t fare properly on the field workplace. The follow-up film revolved round Steven Carrell’s Evan Baxter from the primary film in a contemporary take of Noah’s Ark.
