Carrey and Stiller to Team Up as "Used Guys"

Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller will team up to play "Used Guys" for director Jay Roach, says Variety. It’s a high-concept comedy about two obsolete pleasure clones who have a tough time making it in the futuristic world.

"Scripted 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."

Jay Roach is best known for directing all three "Austin Powers" movies, as well as "Mystery, Alaska," "Meet the Parents," and "Meet the Fockers."

Production on the Fox flick will begin next spring.
