‘Bachelorette’ Duo Leslye Headland, Kirsten Dunst Enlist Jason Sudeikis For ‘Sleeping With Other People’
BREAKING: Bachelorette writer-director Leslye Headland is re-teaming with Kirsten Dunst and Gary Sanchez Productions on Sleeping With Other People, a co-production between Gary Sanchez and IM Global. Jason Sudeikis, who left Saturday Night Live and starred in the summer hit We’re The Millers, will play the male lead. He’s separately set to reprise in Horrible Bosses 2.
Sudeikis plays a good-natured womanizer who befriends a remorseful serial cheater (Dunst). Their platonic relationship reforms their chronic infidelity but sparks an inconvenient romantic attraction to each other. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Jessica Elbaum are producing. CAA packaged the film and will rep U.S. rights, while IM Global is handling international rights. Bachelorette, an edgy comedy that premiered at Sundance, became a multi-platform success through Radius.
