Although Phillip Morris was originally slated to debut in the spring, the dark comedy starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor faced numerous delays. Now, it appears the film about cellmates-turned-lovers may have been saved from indefinite hold.

According to Roadside Attractions, the movie with a possible marketing problem will now be released on December 3, 2010. “Jim and Ewan once again prove themselves to be among the rare group of A-list actors who take the risks, embrace them and wildly succeed,” the studio’s co-president stated.

“This is a film that everyone has been talking about, and we’re thrilled it became available again, as we had been in hot pursuit of it at Sundance and were disappointed it was one that got away.”

Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor Promote New Film with a Kiss

Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor

I always knew was appealing, but who knew he was Jim Carrey’s type?

Earlier this week, the two actors kissed it up for the cameras while in France. The I Love You Phillip Morris costars were in the country to be knighted by the National Order of Arts and Letters.

So were the two so caught up in the moment that they decided to share a smooch? Possibly—but they also have a movie to promote. In the dramedy due out March 26, Ewan and Jim play cellmates who later become lovers.

You can watch the trailer for Phillip Morris after the jump.
