‘Phillip Morris’ postponed indefinitely

Carrey-McGregor dark comedy was scheduled to open April 30

“I Love You Phillip Morris” isn’t getting much love these days.

The dark comedy starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor has been postponed indefinitely, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Pic, which debuted at Sundance in 2009, originally eyed a March 26 release (limited) when Consolidated Pictures Group announced plans to shift the pic’s U.S. bow to April 30. (Daily Variety, Feb. 19) As of Friday, a CPG spokesman said there is currently no release date scheduled for the film.

Despite a star-studded cast and an 83% fresh score on RottenTomatoes, “Phillip Morris” has been plagued with distribution distress, perhaps due to the film’s challenging subject matter.

From “Bad Santa” scribes Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, “Phillip Morris” tells the story of a married con man (Carrey) who falls in love with his cellmate (McGregor). Pic is based on the life of con man/artist Steven Jay Russell.
