This from two Universal studio executives, who are trying to justify the obscenely astronomical cost of the Jim Carrey Bruce Almighty follow up movie:
"This movie is a great bet," said Universal Chairman Marc Shmuger. "It's a spectacle fantasy and also a comedy. And a sequel to one of the most successful hits in the studio's history."
"It's based on two story sources: 'Bruce Almighty' and the Bible, both of which were incredibly successful," Linde said.
