‘Phillip Morris’ finds distribution love

Roadside, Liddell plan U.S. release on Dec. 3

Roadside Attractions and Liddell Entertainment have nabbed North American distrib rights to Jim Carrey-Ewan McGregor starrer “I Love You Phillip Morris,” with plans for a Dec. 3 release date.

Deal, announced today, is welcome news for “Morris” after having been postponed indefinitely when Consolidated Pictures Group nixed the pic’s limited April 30 launch. Pic, about a married con man (Carrey) who falls in love with his cellmate (McGregor), bowed at last year’s Sundance.

“Morris” is from helmer-scribe team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who also co-wrote “Bad Santa,” and is based on the non-fiction book by former Houston Chronicle investigative reporter Steve McVicker.

“Audiences who know this is from the creators of ‘Bad Santa’ will be thrilled that it’s as outrageous as they’d expect,” said Mickey Liddell, who also partnered with Roadside on Chris Rock’s 2009 docu “Good Hair.” “It’s a true-life, daring crazy love story with fascinating lead performances by Carrey and McGregor.”

Deal was negotiated by Liddell and Robert Darwell, an attorney for Shepard Mullin, on behalf of Liddell Entertainment and by Roadside’s co-prexy Howard Cohen and attorney Greg Bernstein.
