JIM CARREY has found himself a new girlfriend - on screen at least.
FINAL DESTINATION star AMANDA DETMER has signed up to join the cast of THE MAJESTIC. Carrey is set to star as a blacklisted 1950's Hollywood writer who loses his job and identity following a car accident. He makes a new home for himself in a small town, where he is mistaken for a soldier who has died. Detmer will play Carrey's starlet girlfriend before the crash erases his memory.
The Majestic - formerly THE BIJOU - is set to be directed by FRANK DARABONT of THE GREEN MILE fame and is due to begin filming on 5 March (01). The script was written by MICHAEL SLOANE. (RGS/WNWCPO)
