A few weeks ago we reported that Universal was trying to get Jim Carrey to join the cast of Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall as The Colonel. Well now the film’s director, Jeff Wadlow, has tweeted out a tease that seemingly points to Carrey officially being on board the project. Check it out below:

Though he doesn’t outright name Carrey in the tweet, Wadlow’s use of the “alrighty then” catchphrase that the actor popularized should ignite speculation that the deal is done. If the deal was finalized over the weekend, the studio might be holding off on an official announcement until after Labor Day. Either way, we’ll continue covering this story as more details get released.
