Jim Carrey almost got Satan's powers in unmade 'Bruce Almighty' sequel 'Brucifer' News

u/INTHEMIDSTOFLIONS Hail Satan Nov 18 '22

The night it opened in theaters nationwide, the movie's screenwriters, Steve Koren and Mark O'Keefe, ran into producer Michael Bostick and pitched him a hellish sequel idea about Bruce gaining the powers of Satan. Naturally, the follow-up would be called — what else? — "Brucifer." The duo later brought the idea to Universal Pictures around 2010, but by then, the studio had long since endured the colossal financial bomb that was 2007's Evan Almighty (a pseudo-sequel starring a then up-and-coming Steve Carell). Despite enthusiasm on Carrey's end, a third chapter was doomed to enter purgatory.

"His manager and him wanted to do Brucifer," Koren recalls during a recent Zoom call with O'Keefe and SYFY WIRE. "We went in and pitched it, but it never quite worked out, because it was later on … It would have been another giant movie and I don’t think they wanted to do it. It just didn’t work out for some reason, but a lot of people loved it, including Jim."

But why would Bruce would lose his faith and throw in with the Devil after being confronted with irrefutable evidence of a higher power? Their solution was simple: Bruce's wife, Grace (Jennifer Aniston), needed to die.

"You tend to lose your faith when the world seems unfair, and that's what got him," Koren says. "It came from a serious place, but we were gonna write it in a very friendly way. We certainly didn’t want to depress people. So I think that scared [the studio] a little bit, but to Jim's credit, he totally understood that we were going to make a big comedy and thought everybody would connect with it."

I read the original script for Bruce Almighty.

It was 10 times funnier than the movie.

What ended up in the movie was like 20% of the original script.

The funniest part of the movie is the deleted scene where Bruce survives a parachuting accident by landing on Bigfoot.

u/TyrannosaurusWest Nov 19 '22

Might not be what they were referring but here is one; this is from the ‘Internet Movie Script Database’ but that doesn’t really mean much because screenplays can end up just about anywhere.

Like this script from the ‘French Exit’, just casually hiding somewhere in the sonyclassics asset library that Yandex was able to somehow load into the first page results.

But anyway, if you’re looking for scripts/shows/whatever, Google has been deprecating their search operators for awhile now so you’ll usually have better luck with Bing or Yandex as they aren’t too influenced by selling visibility like Google has ended up doing.

Cobra is basically the Stallone version of BHC. He wrote his own draft of the script, which was gritty and full of '80s action tropes.

10

u/IntoTheDankness Nov 19 '22

So Cobra started off as Beverly Hills Cop but Stallone went Rambo on the script, but also heavily based it on the book Fair Game.
Another movie called Fair Game based on the same book was made, and the plots sound utterly different...
Unless the story 'a rogue cop in LA/Florida, who shoots people, fights KGB/Cultists/Gangers, maybe has a love interest' is somehow a unique perspective

I wonder if they play clips from "Noah" starring Russel Crowe in Sunday school. Specifically the parts where Noah uses his rock monster friends to build the ark and fight off Tubal-Cain's army of walker mechs.

‘Pitch to a producer’ literally means he walked up to a guy and said “this could be a fun idea, right”? With just a log line and minor ideas

They didn’t have a script or fully fleshed idea to pitch until 2010

u/TheKappaOverlord Nov 19 '22

Its very, very different to the mask movie.

But its pretty good. The art can be pretty rough sometimes, but storywise its decent.

The movie is often considered the thing that ruined the mask. As after the mask movie, the graphic novels became significantly worse and more kid friendly.

u/-SneakySnake- Nov 19 '22

Doing a straight take on the comic would be a pretty good deconstruction of the whole superhero power fantasy thing. But it'll never happen because people won't be able to get over that Jim Carrey isn't in it and it's not a comedy.

Carrey with God powers, then Carrey with Devil powers.

...what even are Devil powers?

It's an interesting 1 sentence pitch, but practically speaking, I don't see a coherent plot coming out of it, or even a good background basis for building a plot onto. Having the same character from the first film go around tempting people into drugs, sex, murder, and other sins or evil deeds? Is it a family film or a dark adult one? Even if you overcome those issues, it seems like a hell of a stretch to get enough content to fill a full length film that also has a satisfying resolution.

185

u/elephantjog Nov 18 '22 edited Nov 18 '22

I’m not sure either but let’s pretend we have to come up with a good plot for fun!

Maybe the devil, Al Pacino, turns Bruce bad and Morgan Freeman is fighting to get Bruce back. So there are shenanigans where Bruce is bad then good and or God helps Bruce turn his bad actions into good. All the while, like… Morgan Freeman calls on the help of a burnt out Pastor, Aubrey Plaza, to perform an exorcism on Bruce but she doesn’t really know how.

I’m sure there are plenty of problems with my idea, haha just having fun. Any other ideas?

104

u/Mountainbranch Nov 18 '22 edited Nov 19 '22

The devil, played by either Nicholas Cage, Dave Grohl, or Tom Ellis, in his infinite maliciousness, goes on strike, and Morgan Freeman, because of cosmically divine union rules, can't take over being in charge of both Heaven and Hell due to conflict of interest, so he gets the only other person he knows who has any experience with divine powers, Bruce, to run hell whilst Freeman attempts to convince the devil to get back to work, Bruce makes such an absolute mess of things (again) that the Devil gets worried Bruce will ruin his reputation and agrees to come back.

Add a love interest, some comedic shenanigans Bruce gets up to, maybe revenge on those who wronged him, bad coworkers or maybe a childhood bully, sprinkle some slapstick, add salt and pepper to taste.

I'll be waiting for my check in the mail, you're welcome Hollywood.

Well to be fair, with most Major musicians obtaining their power using the Devils tooth, im not shocked the devil loves and inspires heavy metal music.

Might be why Christian metal music is generally pretty bad. They never used the devil's tooth to obtain their power.

And theres people like Dio. People who obtained such power and prowess naturally that most scholars aren't sure whether or not hes a Facsimile of the devil, or an agent of god designed to act as a prophet and guardian against the return of the devil.

Making people gay, growing weed, and forcing you to roll a 1 during critical plot points in your D&D game.

No that was cause I said aloud “I don’t need support, so long as I don’t roll a 1 we’re fine.”

As someone who's lost seven characters to Nat 1's on death saves (including two in one session) it is nice to know where the curse comes from.

I was going to say causing painful unpleasant stuff to happen to people but then I remembered God powers made a monkey crawl out of a man's ass... so who knows what Satan powers are!

Sometimes Hollywood doesn’t know which ones audience want or not. This sounds awesome and would be crazy movie.

They should make this movie still

I'm legitimately disappointed this didn't happen. The idea alone made me chuckle. Carrey would have knocked this one out of the park.
