Summoned from an ashram in Tibet where he has retreated to seek spiritual guidance after failing to save the life of a stranded raccoon, Ace finds himself thrust into the most challenging case of his career. He embarks on a perilous journey into the jungles of Africa with his constant companion, Spike the monkey, to find Shikaka, the missing sacred animal of the friendly Wachati tribe. He must accomplish this before the wedding of the Wachati's Princess (SOPHIE OKONEDO) to the prince of the warrior Wachootoos. If Ace fails, the result will be a vicious tribal war.
Relying on his wits and uncanny powers of detection, as well as the aid of some newfound animal and human friends, foremost among them Ouda, the wise brother of the Princess, the ingenious Ace outmaneuvers a host of dangerous adversaries as he races against time to recover the sacred animal, with the fate of the Bonai Province hanging in the balance.
Morgan Creek has hired Jeff Sank and brothers Jason and Justin Heimberg to write a third installment of the hit Ace Ventura franchise.
The latest pet project is expected to center on the eccentric detective's son, who steps into his father's shoes to take over the family business, says The Hollywood Reporter.Read More
