Horrible Bosses costars Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis are lining up to film the pot-smuggling roadtrip comedy We’re the Millers, from Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber. Sudeikis will star as a drug dealer putting together a fake family, under the guise of a roadtrip, as he attempts to smuggle 1400 lbs of marijuana across the country to Mexico. Aniston will play the fake wife, who is really a prostitute.

The script, from Wedding Crashers writers Steve Faber and Bob Fisher, is described as a cross between National Lampoon’s Vacation, The Hangover and Horrible Bosses. Sudeikis and Aniston’s Bosses co-star, Jason Bateman, was previously attached to play the drug dealer last summer (previous attempts at making the film also had Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi eyed for the lead role.)

This news adds fuel to last week’s headline that Sudeikis, in addition to Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, would be leaving Saturday Night Live at the end of its current season. Sudeikis, who was considered the highlight of last year’s Hall Pass, will next be seen alongside Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in this August’s The Campaign. He is also schedule to co-star alongside real-life girlfriend Olivia Wilde in Relanxious, scheduled to shoot this summer.

    Aniston as a hooker. I like it. And nice to see something of interest from Thurber, too. He hasn’t done much since Dodgeball, except write Tower Heist.

    He wrote Tower Heist? He’s not listed in the credits. Uncredited rewrite? I thought Thurber hadn’t directed since Dodgeball, but he did direct another movie that tanked terribly.

    This doesn’t sound appealing at all. Apparently this script has been around a decade too. I thought Hall Pass was terrible and Sudeikis has not appealed to me in anything I’ve seen him in. Eh.

    Sounds like a recipe for funny. I love Sudeikis and was wondering when we were gonna see another film from the Wedding Crashers writers. It’s really no big deal that a script has been around for a decade. Tropic Thunder was around for a long time and it was still great. Thurber really hasn’t done much since Dodgeball except for a small release independent film and a short film, but hey he obviously has some talent. And I love me some Sudeikis and I wouldn’t say no to a Jennifer aniston prostitute so I’m in.
