Jason Sudeikis Will Be Sleeping With Other People
He'll co-star with Kirsten Dunst

This is not some gossip-mongering headline more suited to the likes of The Daily Stale. We’re The MillersJason Sudeikis has signed to star alongside Kirsten Dunst in writer-director Leslye Headland’s new comedy Sleeping With Other People.

The project finds Headland and Dunst teaming up again after working on Bachelorette, which arrived here last month. Sleeping With Other People is described as a “biting comedy about a good-natured womanizer (Sudeikis) who befriends a remorseful serial cheater (Dunst). Their platonic relationship reforms their chronic infidelity but sparks an inconvenient romantic attraction to each other.”

The new film marks another reunion, as Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez production company is aboard to oversee the film, as it did with Bachelorette. There’s no word on when the cameras will start cranking (Sudeikis in particular has a busy film schedule) but the rights are being pimped at the Toronto Film Market.

Dunst has recently worked on The Two Faces Of January and will pop up in a cameo for Anchorman: The Legend Continues. She’s also attached to Mud director Jeff Nichols’ latest, Midnight Special. Sudeikis has Relanxious, Tumbledown and Horrible Bosses 2 all jockeying for position on his To Do list.
