Jim Carrey will star in Yes Man, a Warner Bros. Pictures comedy being directed by Peyton Reed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a memoir by British author Danny Wallace the studio picked up in April 2005, the story centers on a man who decides to change his life by saying "yes" to absolutely everything that comes his way. Saying "yes" leads him on a series of unexpected comedic adventures that turn his whole life upside-down.

Carrey is looking to shoot Yes Man in October before filming A Christmas Carol, which Robert Zemeckis is directing for Disney.

His next film, the animated Horton Hears A Who, will be released March 2008.
