Ben Stiller is a Pleasure Clone in "Used Guys"

Ben Stiller is a Pleasure Clone in "Used Guys"Submit Comment
Three years after 20th Century Fox pulled the plug on "Used Guys," the futuristic comedy that had Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller starring as a pair of obsolete pleasure clones, the studio is now looking to bring back the film as a romantic comedy.

Stiller is now in talks to star and the "Little Miss Sunshine" team of Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton is in talks to direct. Reese Witherspoon's been approached to take the lead female role.

Fox halted the film in May 2006, a month prior to the start of lensing, saying "Used Guys" wouldn't be ready for its scheduled start date because of its futuristic sets. And due to the delays, the studio said, "Guys" wouldn't wrap before Carrey and Stiller had other acting commitments.

But it turned out that Fox pulled the plug when the pic's budget sailed past $110 million, even though the stars and director Jay Roach had agreed to work at reduced rates.

Oh man, they shouldn't let go of Faris and Dayton. Little Miss Sunshine is just amazing!

^^^ Agree with both of you on that one. Stiller and Carrey would be great to see together.
