According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Shue has been cast opposite Jim Carrey in The Number 23, a psychological thriller Joel Schumacher is directing for New Line Cinema. Contrafilm's Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing.

The film, written by Fernley Phillips, sees Carrey as a man who comes into contact with an obscure book titled The Number 23. As he reads it, he becomes increasingly convinced that the book is based on his own life. His obsession with the number 23 starts to consume him to the point that he soon realizes that the book forecasts far graver consequences for his life than he could ever have imagined.

Shue plays Carrey's wife as well as a character in the book.
