Chris Columbus is negotiating with Paramount to direct Ripley's Believe It Or Not. A rewrite of the script is expected.

Paramount is negotiating with Chris Columbus to direct its long-gestating "Ripley's Believe It or Not!"

Jim Carrey is still set to star as newspaper columnist-explorer Robert Ripley.

After being unplugged months before a 2007 production start in China with Tim Burton at the helm, "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" is getting a complete overhaul, based on a concept that Columbus pitched. Both Paramount and Carrey sparked to it, and the China-based storyline will be scrapped.

Once Columbus' deal is closed, the studio will hire a writer to draft the project, which remains a Par priority: The studio is aiming for a 2011 release and is hoping the pic spawns a franchise.
