Variety announced that Jim would reprise the role, confirming that Dr. Robotnik had survived what once seemed to be a perilous fall.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 premieres in theaters on December 20. 

The movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler.

This comes after Carrey responded in November to rumours he’s returning to the Grinch sequel. 

It was been claimed that a follow-up to 2000 Christmas film – How the Grinch Stole Christmas – was being planned, according to Giant Freaking Robot.

They also alleged Jim was set to make a comeback to the titular Grinch role from the Ron Howard film.

The publication claimed: ‘Jim Carrey is returning to Universal Pictures for The Grinch 2, once again playing Dr. Seuss’s most famous and ill-tempered creation.’

But it appears all is not what it seems.

The thespian’s representative told People: ‘There is no truth to Jim reprising his role as the Grinch in a sequel to The Grinch.’

This comes after speculation The Mask actor would be returning to Whoville to portray the ill-tempered, green-furred creature who hates Christmas. 

But it may not come as a surprise to some that the actor is not reprising the 23-year-old role, as he previously revealed he was not a fan of sequels.  

Speaking to CinemaBlend in 2017, the actor said: ‘I find sequels are a function of commerce for the most part. 

‘At least the two I’ve done, they were characters I enjoyed doing, but I did find myself almost parroting myself at that point.

‘When you put 10 years between you and the last time you did it, suddenly you’re going, ‘How did I do that again?’… So, you’re imitating your original inspiration.’

The Batman Forever actor notably announced that he was planning on ‘retiring’ from acting last year in April following the release of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, and explained that he feels he has ‘done enough.’ 

It comes after earlier this year Jim listed his ‘sanctuary’ Los Angeles mansion for a whopping total of $28.9 million, which has been his place of residence for nearly 30 years.

Not a fan! Perhaps the news may not be a surprise to some as Carrey previously told CinemaBlend that he was not a fan of sequels 

The  Golden Globe winner initially purchased the lavish estate in 1994, but informed The New York Post in a statement published on Monday that he was ready for ‘changes’ in his life. 

Jim opened up about his reasoning to list his long-time home in a statement to The New York Post, and expressed, ‘For three decades it’s been a sanctuary for me but I don’t spend a lot of time there now and I want someone else to enjoy it like I have.’ 

He humorously added that he was ready for, ‘Cha cha cha cha … Changes,’ referencing to a hit David Bowie track titled: Changes.

According to the outlet, Carrey had purchased the home, which is located in the Brentwood neighbourhood in L.A., for $3.8 million in 1994. 

The talented star also talked to The Wall Street Journal in regards to selling the sprawling 12,704 square-foot mansion. He expressed that the house had been, ‘a place of enchantment and inspiration.’ 

While reflecting on his years there, he stated, ‘Every night the owls sang me lullabies and every morning I sipped my cup of joe with the hawks and hummingbirds, under a giant grandfather pine.’

Listing his mansion was a positive step for the star who is ready for a change in his life, not long after Jim revealed that he had plans to retire from acting last year in April. 

Fufilled: The star added that he felt that he had 'done enough' in his career, and was 'fairly serious' about retirement

During an interview with Access Hollywood at the time, the Bruce Almighty star discussed his plans after being asked if he was ‘serious’ about the decision. ‘Well, I’m retiring. Yeah, probably. I’m being fairly serious.’

‘It depends. If the angels bring some sort of script that’s written in gold ink that says to me that it’s going to be really important for people to see, I might continue down the road, but I’m taking a break.’ 

The star, who gained recognition in the early 90s, admitted that, ‘I really like my quiet life and I really like putting paint on canvas and I really love my spiritual life,’ adding that in regards to his acting career, ‘I have enough. I’ve done enough. I am enough.’
