Jim Carrey says "yes" to Yes Man
The book, penned by Briton Danny Wallace, is set to be made into a film with Carrey as the central character and The Break-Up director Peyton Reed behind the camera.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Carrey is to shoot Yes Man this October, before turning his attention to the Disney project A Christmas Carol.
Yes Man could turn out to be a great comedy, as the novel featured Wallace in a number of bizarre situations all because he just said yes.
And while Carrey may have started his career as a rubber-faced funnyman, he has recently shown his talent for portraying sweet and sensitive characters, such as Joel Barish in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
