Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to star in New Line Cinema's R-rated comedy Hall Pass, directed by Pete and Bobby Farrelly.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on a married couple who find themselves in a lull in their marriage and just going through the motions. The wife then gives her husband (Wilson) a "hall pass," a free ticket to engage in extramarital encounters. Sudeikis would play the guy's best friend, who also gets a free pass.

Hall Pass will start production February 23 in Atlanta, Georgia.
