Leslie Mann jumps into Jim Carrey's bed for I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS

Mann will play Carrey's poor wife whose husband is sent to prison and falls in love with cellmate Ewan McGregor. It's a black comedy from the writers of BAD SANTA!

Judd Apatow's real life wife and talented comedic actress Leslie Mann has joined the Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor black comedy I Love You Phillip Morris according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comedy comes from the writers of Bad Santa who are making their directorial debut...
The story follows a married father (Carrey) who is sent to prison and falls in love with a cellmate named Phillip Morris. His love leads him to make several escape attempts. Mann will play Carrey's wife.
This one is next up for Carrey & McGregor as it begins production next month. Has Carrey done black comedy before? Man on the Moon was a little more on the dramatic side so I'm not sure that counts. The Cable Guy - maybe be the closest. Fascinating project this one. I did like the concept of Bad Santa and this one sounds as if it will be in the same tone. Hope Carrey's toned down and McGregor isn't just a side attraction.
We need more writers about Jim-Carrey, Ewan-McGregor, Movie News, leslie-mann and Casting! Get started below...
