IFC Takes Jason Sudeikis-Alison Brie Comedy ‘Sleeping With Other People’ (EXCLUSIVE)

IFC Films has closed a deal for North American rights to the Jason Sudeikis-Alison Brie romantic comedy “Sleeping With Other People,” two weeks after its Sundance Film Festival premiere.

The deal was for above seven figures with a P&A commitment in the seven-figure range.

Bidding was heated, with at least half a dozen interested parties at various points. CAA handled the sale.

Production companies are Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Gloria Sanchez Prods. Producers are Sidney Kimmel, Jessica Elbaum, Adam McKay and Will Ferrell; exec producers are Jim Tauber, Carla Hacken and Matt Berenson.

Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) directed from her own script, with Sudeikis portraying a womanizer and Brie a serial cheater. The characters first meet in college, then rekindle their relationship when they run into each other more than a decade later at a sex addicts meeting.

Natasha Lyonne, Amanda Peet and Adam Scott also star.

SKE financed “Sleeping,” its first theatrical feature since Hacken became president of production. It’s also the first title made under the banner of Gloria Sanchez Productions.
