Jason Sudeikis is starring in a new movie produced by his Saturday Night Live predecessor Will Ferrell. Called Sleeping with Other People, it’s a romantic comedy that stars Sudeikis and Kirsten Dunst. The project was announced at the Toronto Film Festival this morning, Variety reports. In the film, Sudeikis plays “a good-natured womanizer who befriends a remorseful serial cheater” (Dunst). Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are producing via their company Gary Sanchez, while Leslye Headland is serving as writer/director. Headland made her feature debut last year with Bachelorette, which also starred Dunst and was produced by Ferrell and McKay.
Sudeikis, who wrapped up an eight-year stint as an SNL cast member in May, had a surprise hit this summer with his movie We’re the Millers, which grossed $123 million domestically. Sudeikis is set to film Horrible Bosses 2 next, with movies Relanxious, One Night on the Hudson, and Tumbledown also in the works.
