Twelve years after Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz starred opposite one another in The Mask, it appears the duo will reunite for A Little Game Without Consequence, to be directed by Gabriele Muccino. Based on a play (which was already adapted into a French film back in 2004), pic will mark Muccino's second English-language effort -- he also directed the upcoming Will Smith flick, The Pursuit of Happyness. (Yes Martha, it's still spelled wrong.) Muccino's 2001 Italian-language film, L'Ultimo Bacio, has its own American version (The Last Kiss) coming out this fall.

In Consequence, Carrey and Diaz will play a "seemingly perfect couple who pretend to break up shortly after their fifth anniversary, only to discover most of their friends and family didn't really like them as a couple in the first place." Heck, I don't blame them -- personally, I can't see them as a couple either. Production is set to begin in New York City this October, which means we can expect the film to hit theaters at some point towards the end of 2007.
