Not content to let Adam Sandler and the Grown Ups hog all the filmmaking-with-friends fun, movie buds Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis have signed on to follow Going The Distance and Horrible Bosses (and the previously confirmed Horrible Bosses 2) with the cop comedy One Night On The Hudson. Directed by their Horrible Bosses bro Seth Gordon, the film follows a buttoned-down, rule-abiding rookie and his world-weary partner as they attempt to transport a federal witness from New Jersey to Manhattan. No word on who’s playing which officer, but the descriptions of the protagonists suggest that Day and Sudeikis will temporarily shelf their amiable, good-natured familiarity with one another for most of the film. Until, that is, the inevitable point in their tangling with “dirty cops, dirty criminals, and the Hudson River” where the cops realize they’re more alike than they previously thought, and enter into genuine, Day-Sudeikis-like employment-based fraternity. No word yet if Bateman is in talks to play the river.
