Myriad Pictures to produce ‘Relanxious’

Company will spearhead laffer starring Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis

Myriad Pictures has come on board to produce indie romantic comedy “Relanxious,” starring Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis.

The Allegiance Theater set up the movie earlier this year. Myriad Pictures is selling “Relanxious” at the AFM.

Brie Larson and Fred Armisen will also star in the film, to be directed by Christopher Storer from his own script. The Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki (“Up in the Air”) is producing along with Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico.

Story centers on an anxiety-ridden woman (Wilde) meeting an agoraphobic (Sudeikis) and engaging in a courtship over the phone, discussing the dates they would go on if their phobias didn’t stand in the way. As the fantasies develop, the two must decide if they can put aside their fears in order to find real-life romance.

“Through Chris Storer’s highly original script and the wonderful chemistry of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis we get to go on fantasy dates all over Chicago,” D’Amico said.
