Calling Ace Ventura! Pet detective crowdfunder set up to find six spaniels

A crowdfunding appeal has been set up to fund a ‘pet detective’ to trace stolen dogs and reunite them with their devastated owner.

As reported previously, six cocker spaniels were stolen from kennels outside dogbreeder Julie Whiteley’s home in New Mill last week.

Despite a police appeal to trace the dog-napped pets, and CCTV of four men captured at the scene, Julie is yet to learn the dogs’ fate or hear if police have found those responsible.

The theft happened at 12.30am at the house in Snowgate Head on November 1.

Julie said the first she knew something was wrong was when she went to the kennels and found all the pens open and all but one of the cocker spaniels were gone.

Now a Just Giving page has been set up by the owner of one of

‘Ace Ventura’ May Be Getting A Reboot – Simplemost

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” the movie that made a star out of Jim Carrey, may be getting a reboot. According to Deadline, a production company that owns the rights to the 1994 film is interested in reviving the franchise. (In addition to the original movie, there’s also the 1995 sequel “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls” and the 2009 direct-to-video “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Jr.”)

Morgan Creek Entertainment Group announced that their idea is not to remake the original story but, rather, to produce “a new movie in the spirit of the original.” Since it’s unclear whether Jim Carrey would reprise his role, one idea that’s been floated around is a story in which Carrey’s character would basically pass the torch to someone new. The potential plot would revolve around Ace Ventura’s long-lost son or daughter, who shows up on Ace’s doorstep and decides to get into the family business. (See

An ‘Ace Ventura’ Reboot Is On The Way — But Will Jim Carrey Join It …

The 1994 movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the story of a goofy detective with an affinity for animals — on a journey to find the Miami Dolphins’ missing mascot — grossed over $100 million worldwide and rocketed Jim Carrey to comedy stardom. Its success spawned a sequel in 1995, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, which proved to be even more successful.

Now, 22 years later, Morgan Creek Productions (which is changing its name to Morgan Creek Entertainment Group is looking to resurrect the movie … but possibly in spirit only.

According to David Robinson, the president of Morgan Creek, the company is open to either a movie or a TV revival. Robinson told Deadline:

“We wanted to do a mainstream theatrical production relaunch. Because it’s episodic in nature, about a pet detective, it also lends itself to a traditional single-camera series franchise.”

The biggest question is whether Jim Carrey would reprise one of

Is ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’ Set For A Re-Boot?

As Hollywood’s fervour for re-boots shows no signs of abating, news has arrived that the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective films may come in for the re-make treatment.

The 1994 original film was one of the most memorable cult films of the decade, and helped Jim Carrey to stardom alongside similar slapstick-based movies like The Mask and Liar Liar, making him a staple of American comedies for years to come. A sequel, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, was rushed out at the end of 1995, but no more films were made.

However, Deadline reports on Friday (October 27th) that Morgan Creek Entertainment Group, which owns the rights to the movies, is considering a re-boot after more than two decades.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to return, Young Guns and Major League reboots also in development

Ace Ventura is definitely a character of his time, one who launched the 90’s success story that was Jim Carrey, while grossing over $100m worldwide and creating catchphrases that have echoed through to today.

Now, off the back of the news that Morgan Creek Productions, the company behind the film and its sequel, When Nature Calls, are rebranding, comes the announcement from Deadline that they plan to revive the pet detective.

It’s highly unlikely that Carrey will return, having recently revealed that his old self doesn’t exist anymore, and with Man on the Moon documentary Jim and Andy: The Great Beyond set to underline his underrated strengths as an actor, he’ll probably concentrate on more serious projects, such as Michel Gondry directed Showtime half-hour, Kidding.

Morgan Creek Entertainment Group will move forward with the Ace Ventura franchise regardless, saying “we wanted to do a mainstream theatrical
