Jason Segel is reported to be working again with frequent collaborator Nicholas Stoller on a new film written by Kate Angelo called Sex Tape. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall director is set to direct the film that will star Segel. The story centers on a young couple who try to spice things up on a night without the kids by making a sex tape, which is missing the next morning. This would be the fifth collaboration between Stoller and Segel, who cowrote the upcoming The Muppets.

The female costar is as of yet uncast. Deadline is reporting that the studio wants Reese Witherspoon, but Variety says they are also looking at Amy Adams (Segel’s Muppets costar), Rose Byrne (Get Him to the Greek), and Jennifer Garner. Also mentioned is Emily Blunt, who costarred with Segel in Gulliver’s Travels and also in the upcoming Five-Year Engagement.

One presumes the film will be R-rated with strong sexual content, and while Segel would seem to be a cinch for onscreen nudity, none of the actresses listed has appeared nude in recent years - certainly not since they’ve been bigger names. Witherspoon in particular would seem an unlikely choice in this regard, though she’s the biggest star among the actresses named.

    I think Rose Byrne has the comedic chops to handle this. GHTTG proved she’s not afraid of raunchy scenes, and Bridesmaids gave her some good exposure in a big role. Add her success with X-Men and she looks like a great candidate for this movie

    I agree with rick , Rose Byrne is the best option between those names
