IFC Films won a seven-figure bidding war for the Jason Sudeikis-Alison Brie romantic comedy Sleeping With Other People at the Berlin Film Festival, following the pic’s world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. It has set a September 11 release date for the pic, written and directed by Leslye Headland and exec produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
Now the first trailer has dropped for the pic, in which Sudeikis and Brie are college buddies who meet 12 years later at a sex addicts meeting. Because of their monogamy-challenged ways, neither can maintain a relationship, so they make a pact to keep their new relationship platonic. Like that’s gonna last.
Adam Scott, Jason Mantzoukas, Katherine Waterson, Adam Brody, Amanda Peet, Marc Blucas and Andrea Savage co-star. Sidney Kimmel and Jessica Elbaum also produced.
