IFC Films has snapped up North American rights to the Jason Sudeikis-Alison Brie romantic comedy Sleeping With Other People in a mid-seven figure deal that also has a mid-seven figure P&A commitment. The film was written and directed by Leslye Headland and premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. CAA brokered the deal. A wide release is planned. The bidding war for the film ended early Friday morning in Berlin. In the film Sudeikis and Brie play old college chums; he a lothario, her a serial cheater. They run into each other more than 10 years later at a sex addicts meeting and try to rekindle the old sparks.
