“I Love You Phillip Morris”: WGA nod for adapted screenplay
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: The Writers Guild of America threw a major kudo at the largely-overlooked big screen comedy ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ which stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as lovers who meet in prison.
John Requa & Glenn Ficarra are among the five nominees in the adapted screenplay category for their script which was based on the book by Steven McVicker.
Their competition is ‘127 Hours’ by Danny Boyle & Simon Beaufoy; ‘The Social Network’ by Aaron Sorkin; ‘The Town’ by Peter Craig and Ben Affleck & Aaron Stockard and ‘True Grit’ by Joel Coen & Ethan Coen.
The film focuses on a love affair between a con man (Carrey) and his cellmate (McGregor). Carrey’s character commits all kinds of crazy misdeeds, like breaking out of Texas prisons four times, to be with his lover.
