In August, Roadside Attractions picked up rights to distribute I Love You, Phillip Morris in North America. The film, directed by Bad Santa writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, has been at the center of a distribution mess all year. But the film will now see release in the States on December 3. There’s even a poster, which you can see in full below.
I like this one sheet quite a bit, as it captures part of the spirit of the film very well. And hey, it’s cute as hell. Just right for a gay prison break love story caper romance comedy starring Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey. [EW]
Bad Santa co-screenwriters Glenn Ficara and John Requa re-team for this fact-based black comedy starring Jim Carrey as a Texas police officer-turned-con man who makes the leap to white-collar criminal after being sent to prison and falling in love with his sensitive cellmate. Steve Russell (Carrey) is a small-town cop. Bored with his bland lifestyle, Russell turns to fraud as a means of shaking things up. Before long, Russell’s criminal antics have landed him behind bars, where he encounters the charismatic Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). Smitten, Russell devotes his entire life to being with Morris regardless of the consequences — which could well include a life sentence.
