Jason Sudeikis taking a whack at "Horrible Bosses"
By Jay A. Fernandez
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jason Sudeikis is in final negotiations to join the all-star cast of "Horrible Bosses," a comedy set for release next July.
Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman have already signed on to the New Line/Warner Bros. project.
Sudeikis will join Bateman and Day as a trio of friends who conspire to murder each others' bosses. Aniston and Farrell are two of the offending office tyrants, while Foxx is a colorfully named scam artist who dishes killing advice to the three regular guys. Seth Gordon is directing.
Sudeikis has been a writer and performer on "Saturday Night Live," and has regularly appeared on "30 Rock." On the feature side, he appeared in "The Rocker," "What Happens in Vegas" and "Bounty Hunter."
Sudeikis recently wrapped New Line's "Hall Pass," opposite Owen Wilson, and he co-stars in the romantic comedy "Going the Distance," which the studio will release in late August.
