Carrey a gay convict?

06.04.2007

Jim Carrey has signed on to star in the upcoming comedy I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS from the creators of BAD SANTA. The film will star Carrey in the true story of a married father whose frequent brushes with the law lands him in jail. There he falls in love with his cellmate and once his partner is paroled he frequently attempts escape to be with him. The script was written by SANTA's Glenn Ficarra and John Requa who will make their directing debut on the project. Producers describe the film as a mix between CATCH MEN IF YOU CAN and BAD SANTA. Carrey is taking a pay cut to work on the film as the entire budget is expected to be less than the actor's normal salary ($20 million). While it may not be Carrey's next film, it is competing with BELIEVE IT OR NOT!, the Tim Burton directed film at Paramount. Carrey is hoping to do back-to-back films with this film and BELIEVE IT the top two candidates. Carrey hasn't appeared in a comedy in four years (BRUCE ALMIGHTY) and has been itching to get back in the game. His last comedy, USED GUYS with Ben Stiller, was aborted just weeks before filming was scheduled to begin.

This movie sounds great to me. Reminiscent of a skit from the In Living Color days. Something like Tracy Morgan from The Longest Yard. He was the better parts of that movie I think. I'm sure more people would watch a comedy about gay subject matter than watch a drama like Broke Back Mountain. We can all laugh together now.

Catch Men If You Can... so is that the gay porn version of the Hanks/DiCaprio
movie? Sounds more like HBO's Oz.
