Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves & More Join Amirpour's 'The Bad Batch'

March 19, 2015

Jim Carrey

Even though A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night has been mostly under the radar as an independent release, there's been plenty of buzz about the film as well as the future of director Ana Lily Amirpour as a great new filmmaker. Now the winner of Breakthrough Director at the Gotham Awards has just lined up a pretty interesting cast for her next film, The Bad Batch. A press release has ust announced that Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Diego Luna (The Terminal), Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones") and rising star Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent) have all joined the film that Amirpour is directing from a script she wrote herself.

Details are scarce on the plot, but the press release calls The Bad Batch "a dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland," which sounds like something very interesting for all cast members involved, especially Carrey. And while we don't have much in the vein of story details, we do know that Waterhouse is playing a character named Arlen, Momoa is called Miami Man, Luna is Jimmy, Reeves is The Dream and Carrey will play The Hermit. That's not much to go on, but we're glad Annapurna Pictures and VICE are supporting an exciting filmmaker like Amirpour, and we're looking forward to her sophomore effort for sure. Cool?

If its a comedy I'm in. If its Carrey trying to win an Oscar again, I'm out.

Reeves and Momoa have about as much emotion between them as Carey's right ear.
