Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie struggle to fight sex addiction in the first trailer for new American romantic comedy film Sleeping with Other People.

Sleeping with other people trailer

Leslye Headland is back in the directors chair for Sleeping with Other People, as a follow-up to her 2012 indie hit Bachelorette, that saw Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan plan a hen do for bride-to-be Rebel Wilson. This time around she is tackling abstinence for two cheating-obsessed 20 something’s and from the looks of the trailer, it’s bound to be a comic hit.

Twelve years after having a one-night stand, Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) bump into each other in New York. After a catch up chat, they quickly realise they both suffer from monogamy-challenged ways and make a deal to try and form a platonic relationship. Despite their mutual attraction for each other, they attempt to keep to their word, with hilarious consequences. Is it possible for two serial cheaters to get a second chance at finding love?


Headland herself described the film as “When Harry Met Sally, for A-holes,” saying that it is essentially a 21st century near-remake of the much-loved film. Now, whilst this may sound unappealing, we can tell from the trailer that Headland has created a hilarious script, featuring witty one-liners that will keep you laughing throughout. Plus, if that’s not enough, the film is co-produced by comedian Will Ferrell, so we can assure you that hilarity will ensue.

Alongside the strong male and female leading roles, Sleeping with Other People has a great supporting cast from the likes of one of our favourite Orange is the New Black inmates, Natasha Lyonne (Nicky), The Way Way Back’s Amanda Peet, The O.C funnyman Adam Brody and Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott.
