The story centers on a womanizer (Jason Sudeikis) and a serial cheater (Alison Brie) who form a platonic friendship in an effort to curb their unfaithful ways. Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas and Natasha Lyonne have also signed on for unspecified supporting roles.
Leslye Headland (Bachelorette) is directing from her own original screenplay, with Sidney Kimmel is producing alongside Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum. This project will be the first under Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum's new Gloria Sanchez Productions label, an off-shoot of their Gary Sanchez Productions company. Jim Tauber and Carla Hacken will executive produce for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.
Here's what Carla Hacken had to say about Leslye Headland's work in a statement.
"We all loved Leslye's dark, honest, and bitingly humorous film Bachelorette. We appreciate how she challenges social norms with her insightful and hysterical voice and are confident she is going to do that with Sleeping with Other People."
Production is scheduled to begin this June in New York City.
