The project finds Headland and Dunst teaming back up again after working on Bachelorette, which arrived here last month. Sleeping With Other People is being 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.”
And the new film marks even more of a reunion, as Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez production company is aboard to oversee the film, much as it did with Bachelorette. There’s no word on when the cameras will start cranking (especially as Sudeikis in particular has a busy film schedule) but the rights are being pimped at the Toronto Film Market.
Dunst has 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.
