If you’re anything like me, you thought this day would never come—the day when I Love You Phillip Morris got an actual release date.
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.”

UPDATE: The movie has now been given a July 30 release date.
This has not been a good week for Jim Carrey.
On Tuesday, the comedian and his girlfriend of five years, Jenny McCarthy, announced their split over Twitter. Today, it’s been reported that his latest film is being indefinitely delayed.
I Love You Phillip Morris, a dark comedy co-starring Ewan McGregor as Carrey’s cellmate-turned-lover, was at one point scheduled for a March 26 debut. It was then slated for an April 30 premiere. Now, the story about real-life con man Steven Jay Russell will be lucky to get a release date at all.
Although it’s not known why the film is being held up, it’s believed Morris’ subject matter may be making distribution difficult.

I always knew Ewan McGregor 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.
