‘Phillip Morris’ to be released Apr. 30

Jim Carrey-Ewan McGregor starrer debuted at Sundance in '09

Consolidated Picture Group announced it has changed launch dates for its comedy-drama “I Love You Phillip Morris” set to bow in limited release on Apr. 30.

Pic, which debuted at Sundance last year, was originally slated to bow Mar. 26.

Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (“Bad Santa”), “Phillip” tells the story of a married conman (Jim Carrey) who falls in love with his cellmate, played by Ewan McGregor. Pic co-stars Leslie Mann.

“Phillip” will face off with Warner Bros.’ wide release of the “Nightmare on Elm Street” remake, as well as Summit’s Brendan Fraser-comedy “Furry Vengeance” about a real estate developer who battles local forest animals after a proposed housing development threatens their home.

CPG, through Freestyle Releasing, plans for a steady roll out of “Phillip,” expanding the pic during the first two weeks in May.
