The Office's Jenna Fischer is in talks for New Line's Hall Pass, starring as Owen Wilson's wife in the Farrelly brothers-directed comedy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on a married couple in which the wife gives her husband a "hall pass," a free ticket to engage in extramarital encounters.

Jason Sudeikis is on board as the guy's best friend, who also gets a free pass from his wife (still to be cast). Things get complicated when the wives also begin exercising their "hall pass" power.

Pete Jones wrote the spec, which was rewritten by Kevin Barnett and Peter and Bobby Farrelly.

The movie begins production Feb. 23 in Atlanta, which will substitute for New England.
