Fox trades in ‘Used’ pic

“Used Guys,” starring Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller was set to go into production in June under Jay Roach’s helm, but 20th Century Fox pulled the plug Friday, citing pre-production delays. Sources close to the production say Fox got cold feet about the pic when the budget threatened to surpass $110 million. The studio, however, issued a statement Monday saying the pic’s “futuristic settings” wouldn’t be ready in time for the skedded June start date. Because of the delays, “Guys” wouldn’t wrap before Carrey and Stiller had other acting commitments, Fox said.
