Jim Carrey is giving his fans bad news. According to a recent statement, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” could be the last movie he will play.
Jim Carrey has stated that he intends to retire immediately after the release of “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”. The film, which will hit US theaters on April 8, 2022, is a sequel to the 2020 hit, which premiered on February 14, just in time to become one of the most successful films of the year, before the blockages by COVID-19 to force cinemas to close.
The new film will also feature Ben Schwartz as the hedgehog, James Marsden as Tom Wachowski’s companion, Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Tails, and Idris Elba as Knuckles.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” was the first big Hollywood movie starring Jim Carrey after “Dumb and Dumber 2” in 2014.
Jim Carrey doesn’t want to be an actor anymore: “I’ve done enough”
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Carrey announced that he intends to “retire” immediately after “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”. However, it should be noted that not even the actor seems too sure that this will happen. So it remains to be seen whether the announcement will eventually become a reality.
“It simply came to our notice then. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. It all depends on what will be offered to me in the future, and if it will be of interest to me, though. I may continue on my way, but I definitely need a break right now. I really like my quiet life now. (…) I have enough. I’ve done enough. I think that’s enough, “said Jim Carrey.
Until then, whether or not it will be the last movie we can see Jim playing, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” will be released on April 8, 2022, in theaters around the world.
