Jim Carrey is set to star in I Love You Phillip Morris, a comedy written by the duo that brought us Bad Santa. Described as Catch Me if You Can meets Brokeback Mountain in the hopes of making it sound half as interesting as either, Morris sees Carrey as a conman who falls madly in love with his prison cellmate, and then must escape several times to follow his released lover.

I'm having a hard time with the Brokeback Mountain comparison. I mean, sure, I'll buy gay cowboys, but gay prisoners? Come on, does that really happen?
