TrailersLand has posted an extended French promotional trailer for the upcoming Jim Carrey / Ewan McGregor comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. It was just announced that the film will premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. As far as I know, the movie doesn’t yet have a U.S. distributor. The movie is adapted from Steve McVicker’s 2003 novel, and based on a true story. Carrey plays Russell, a criminal who falls in love with his cell mate, Phillip Morris (McGregor). After Morris’ release from prison, Russell attempts a variety of bizarre prison escapes in hopes of reuniting with the love of his life. The movie was apparently pitched as “Catch Me if You Can meets Brokeback Mountain“. The screenplay was written by the team who did Bad Santa. Watch the trailer embedded below thanks to TrailerAddict.
