Ewan McGregor Plays Jim Carrey’s Love Interest

Ewan McGregor has signed on as Jim Carrey’s love interest in I Love You Philip Morris, a comedy written by Glen Ficarra and John Requa (Bad Santa).

The film is based on a true story about Steven Russell (Carrey), a married father and conman who ends up in a Texas prison. There, he finds himself falling for his cellmate Philip Morris (McGregor). His love for Morris gives him the courage he needs and he escapes from prison four times. However, these escapes didn’t do him any favours as, while Morris was finally released, Russell had another 144 years put on his sentence!

Filming on the movie is set to start in the spring once Carrey is finished on A Christmas Carol for Robert Zemeckis.

This film sounds pretty good and certainly seems that it will let Carrey’s comic genius run wild.
