New Line is in final negotiations to add Jason Sudeikis to its comedy Horrible Bosses. The film, which also features Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman, is to be directed by Seth Gordon.
Bosses is from the most recent script by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. Michael Markowitz wrote the initial spec. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern are producing. The pic is scheduled for a July 2011 release.
Sudeikis will join Bateman and Day as a trio of friends who conspire to murder each other’s bosses. Aniston and Farrell are two of the office tyrants, while Foxx is a scam artist who dishes killing advice to the three regular guys, says BIZ.
