We’ve a few casting stories for you today. First up Adam Scott is planning to reteam with Bachelorette director writer-director Leslye Headland for her upcoming comedy Sleeping with Other People. The movie stars Jason Sudeikis as “a womanizer who befriends a serial cheater; ultimately, the two develop a romantic attraction to each other.” According to THR, Alison Brie is in talks to replace Kirsten Dunst, who had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. Headland notes that neither deal is done, and that “‘It’s not set in stone, kids.’ I’ve seen shit fall apart over less.” As Harvey Weinstein‘s former assistant, she should know. Hopefully, Scott and Brie will sign on; they’re both immensely talented and are terrific on two of TV’s best sitcoms, Parks and Recreation and Community, respectively.
