Toronto: Will Ferrell's Gary Sanchez Boards 'Sleeping With Other People'
Gary Sanchez Productions is coming on board to produce Sleeping With Other People, writer-director Leslye Headland and Kirsten Dunst's follow-up to the VOD hit Bachelorette.
Gary Sanchez, run by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, will work with IM Global, the international sales, production and financing outfit.
Jason Sudeikis will star opposite Dunst in what is 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.”
The boarding is a reunion since Sanchez also produced Bachelorette. Ferrell, McKay and the company’s Jessica Elbaum will act as producers. IM Global is pre-selling the film in Toronto.
CAA is handling and reps Headland and Sudeikis. Headland is additionally repped by Caliber Media while Sudeikis by Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Dunst is repped by UTA and Management 360.
