A post on Jim Carrey’s official website has revealed that the April 30 opening isn’t going to happen. In fact, an opening might not happen at all. “Phillip Morris” has, in fact, been “postponed indefinitely.”

Consolidated Pictures Group has postponed the U.S. release date again for Jim Carrey’s new movie “I Love You Phillip Morris” which was filmed in 2008!

It’s the fourth time the movie has been moved since it was screened at Sundance Film Festival on January 18, 2009.

The movie was originally set to be released March 26. But about a month before that date, the company delayed the release date to April 30, when it was supposed to begin a limited run before expanding several weeks later.

Now a spokeswoman for the film confirms that the movie has been delayed again and in fact won’t be coming out at the end of the month. She adds that there is no release date scheduled at this time.

The movie, a true story gay prison romance, stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, was considered an awards contender LAST year, but never got released.

The film has previously been released in France, Monaco, Russia, Taiwan, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Japan, United Kingdom, Ireland, Philippines, Czech Republic, Romania, Iceland, Italy and Norway.
