Days after the announcement that Alison Brie would be starring in Get Hard, a title that only brought out the Internet’s kindest commentary, The Hollywood Reporter claims that she’ll likely be starring alongside Adam Scott in Leslye Headland’s Sleeping With Other People. Headland wrote and directed Bachelorette, and recently penned the script for the About Last Night remake, but has had some trouble locking down a cast for her follow-up. Kirsten Dunst and Jason Sudeikis had previously been confirmed to star in Sleep With Other People, but after a scheduling conflict forced Dunst to back out its status was up in the air. If Scott were to sign on it would reunite him with Headland, who he worked with on Bachelorette, and would make the Party Down/Community crossover that has previously only lived on various fan-fiction sites a reality.
