Aniston and Sudeikis Reuniting for ‘We’re the Millers’
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.
