Corddry will play the couple’s friend who goes along on the adventure.

Sex Tape is eyeing a shoot in the fall, with Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch producing.

This year he also appeared in Warm Bodies and Pain & Gain and stars with Lake Bell in the indie comedy In a World, which Roadside Attractions opens Aug. 9.
