Nickelodeon Movies purchased the film rights to Daniel Handler 's book series in and soon began development of a film with Barry Sonnenfeld attached to direct. Handler adapted the screenplay and courted Jim Carrey for Count Olaf. - The film was envisioned as the first of a franchise that might rival the Harry Potter series, but a sequel never materialised despite a healthy box office return. The production was undoubtedly troubled, not least because producer Scott Rudin left the project as a result of budgetary concerns while director Barry Sonnenfeld was replaced by Brad Silberling, a man initially unfamiliar with the source material.
Not least because it contains elements of many of his greatest comic characters, from Ace Ventura to the Mask and the Grinch. As the preposterous, conniving Count, however, the Canadian actor delivers some of his strongest work, commanding scenes as only he knows how. The plight of the orphans is a strange experience indeed, simultaneously offering us sorrow and dark humour, grief and glory. Throughout the film Carrey adopts a variety of guises, some that can be best described as wizened birds of prey. Tags: Jim Carrey. Joker first look review — This epic misfire is no laughing matter.
