"I Love You Phillip Morris" bowed to lots of buzz at Sundance, but the dark comedy starring Jim Carrey as a gay con man and Ewan McGregor as his cellmate lover, didn't find a U.S. distributor at the festival. Nearly two months later, CAA and Endeavor are closing in on a U.S. distribution deal. The $18 million pic was financed through foreign presales.
Here's the link to the rest, if you're interested http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118001229.html?categoryid=2523&cs=1, but that's the only reference to ILYPM. I do hope this is true, and that there will be a distribution deal very soon.
The piece mostly talks about Liam Neeson's film Taken. We saw it and really liked it. I must say, I'm thrilled for Liam because that movie has made scads of money. It has been playing at our local cinema ever since it opened, which was a while ago now. Yay, Liam!
