Jason Reitman has signed on to direct and Jim Carrey is onboard to star in the comedy Pierre Pierre for Fox Atomic.

According to Variety, the politically incorrect story centers on a self-indulgent French nihilist who transports a stolen painting from Paris to London. The budget has been pegged at $13 million.

Reitman, who earned an Oscar nomination for Juno, next will produce alongside Dubiecki the cheerleader-from-hell comedy-thriller Jennifer's Body for Fox Atomic.

No word on when production begins for Pierre Pierre.
