Evan Almighty


1h 29m 2007

Brief Synopsis

Newly elected to Congress, the polished, preening newscaster, Evan Baxter, is the next one anointed by God to accomplish a holy mission--walking in the footsteps of Bruce Almighty. Evan leaves Buffalo behind and shepherds his family to suburban northern Virginia. Once there, his life gets turned upside-down when God appears and mysteriously commands him to build an ark. But his befuddled family just can't decide whether Evan is having an extraordinary mid-life crisis or is truly onto something of Biblical proportions.

Miscellaneous Notes

Released in United States on Video October 9, 2007

Jim Carrey previously attached to star.

Universal reached an agreement with Sony Pictures to turn the spec "Passion of the Ark" into a sequel for "Bruce Almighty" (USA/2003) directed by Tom Shadyac and starring Jim Carrey.

Sony paid $1.5 million against $2.5 million for the spec by Bobby Florsheim and Josh Stolberg.

When Jim Carrey dropped out, Tom Shadyac and Steve Oedekerk re-worked to script to fit the character played by Steve Carell from the first movie.

Literary Sale Date: 04/15/2004.

Unexpected costs for visual effects and the logistical challenges of filming hundreds of live animals reportedly bumped the film's $140-million budget up to $175 million by the time it's finished. With marketing expenditures, the film is expected to cost at least $250 million.
