One of the more popular films to be showcased at Sundance this year was the comedy “Sleeping with Other People” starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie.
IFC Films acquired the rights to the explicit romantic comedy following the festival, and the studio released the first trailer for the film earlier today.
Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet at a support group in New York (“What’s a nice girl like you doing at a sex addicts meeting?”). A spark resurfaces, but they’ve walked this road before.
Abject failures in romance who lead lives of serial infidelity and self-sabotage, they agree to a platonic friendship to mutually support their recovery.
The film comes from writer-director Leslye Headland and will release in theaters on September 11, 2015.
