Carrey and Stiller....I hope it's not R!

"Jim Carrey is in early talks to team with Ben Stiller and play obsolete pleasure clones in Used Guys a comedy to be directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Fockers) for 20th Century Fox. Variety reports that the plan is to shoot next spring.

Written by David Guion and Michael Handelman from an original script by Mickey Birnbaum, the futuristic Used Guys is set in a world where women run the Earth. Men became extinct because they ingested an enhancement drink that proved fatal.

Carrey and Stiller will play clones rendered obsolete by superior models whose enhancements include better listening and lovemaking skills. The scorned clones make a run for it, bent on regaining their dignity by searching for a male nirvana known as Mantopia.

Used Guys would mark the first onscreen star pairing of Carrey and Stiller, though the latter directed Carrey in The Cable Guy. It will also be Carrey's first film with Roach."
