Danger! Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are going to test their off screen relationship, by working together. Will their relationship survive? These are the tough questions gossip sites will be asking as the new movie “Relanxious” (terrible title) gears up.
The duo will be joined by the charming Brie Larson (“The United States Of Tara,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World“) and the awesome Fred Armisen (“Portlandia,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Trenchmouth“; still waiting for our Nicholas Fehn movie, btw) in the upcoming comedy. Christopher Storer will make his directorial debut on the project that centers on the anxiety ridden Barrett (Wilde) and the agoraphobic George (Sudeikis) who talk to each other about the kind of dates and romance they would go on if they could just find the ability to leave the house. Larson and Armisen will play Barrett’s sister and Geroge’s best friend respectively and we’re guessing the beautiful and handsome leads will realize they are in love with each other etc, etc.
The project will shoot in Chicago this summer, and we suppose if the tone is more dramedy than balls out comedy it could be interesting. But we’re guessing it will be the latter. That said, we like everyone involved and Sudeikis, despite his omnipresence, is still a bit underrated. “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” was actually much better than the limited almost non-release would have you believe (rent it), and Wilde was particularly game during “The Change-Up” last summer so we’ll give this one a shot.
