Carrey, Diaz 'Game' for Marital Reunion

Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz will reunite to play a married couple in "A Little Game Without Consequence," a comedy-drama based on a French film.

It will be their first feature together since 1994's "The Mask," which boosted both of their careers.

The Focus Features film revolves around a married couple who have been happily married for five years but decide to play a trick on their friends by pretending to break up only to discover that most of their friends and family never thought they belonged together in the first place.

Filming will begin next month in New York. It will be directed by Gabriele Muccino, who shot the upcoming "The Pursuit of Happyness," starring Will Smith.

The original 2004 French film, "Un petit jeu sans consequence," was based on a play by Jean Dell and Gerald Sibleyras.

Carrey will be seen next year in "The Number 23." Cameron returns to theaters later this year with "The Holiday" opposite Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Jack Black.
