Jenna Fischer is in talks to star along side Owen Wilson as husband and wife in the Farrelly brothers’ comedy, Hall Pass.
In Pass Fischer’s character gives her husband a “hall pass” meaning he can go out and sleep with a bunch of women and not get in trouble.
Jason Sudeikis will play Wilson’s best friend, who also gets a pass from his wife (not yet cast). However, things get complicated for the philandering fellows when their wives also begin engaging in their new found freedom.
Kevin Barnett & Peter and Bobby Farrelly have rewritten the original spec script by Pete Jones.
Production is set to begin Feb. 23 in Atlanta, which will sub for New England.
Fischer, best known as Pam Beesly The Office, has also appeared in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Blades of Glory.
Hall Pass is the Farrellys first film since the disastrous Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller, Malin Akerman and Michelle Monaghan. It was going to be The Three Stooges, but with Sean Penn’s sabbatical after his divorce from wife Robin Wright, that project was put on hold.
