Ewan McGregor Cast In I Love You Phillip Morris
— Posted by Rodney
Well, this would have been the best news of the day, but Peter Jackson just signed on to produce The Hobbit. It looks like Ewan McGregor will be jim Carey’s prison lover in the upcoming I Love You Phillip Morris. We get the scoop from the professionals at Variety:
This is glorious and legendary news. The irreverent and twisted scribes that brought us the comedy masterpiece that is Bad Santa will now be at the helm of pen and camera. I have stressed before how excited I am that Jim Carey will be working with these dudes, and adding Ewan McGregor to the list of awesome is just peachy.
This crazy dark comedy is based on a true story, which is shocking in its own right; but to have it retold through the perverted minds of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa is going to be the stuff of legend. I love Bad Santa, it is a terribly dark movie that continues to stand as a comedic beacon amongst a sea of shit.
I would hazard a guess that in order for Ewan to sign on as a prison “bitch”, the script for this film would have to be good. I could be reaching here, he may just want a paycheck, but I have a hunch that this film is going to push boundaries, and make tears of laughter flow anew!
I anticipate this film greatly and will keep you all abreast as news updates are made available.
