Myriad Pictures to sell Olivia Wilde comedy Relanxious
CEO Kirk D’Amico has introduced the project from The Allegiance Theater to buyers at AFM.
Jason Sudeikis stars and Brie Larson and Sudeikis’ SNL collaborator Fred Armisen are attached to star in the story about a pair of phobic strangers who struggle to overcome their anxieties and develop a relationship.
Christopher Storer will direct while The Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki produces with Myriad chief Kirk D’Amico.
“Through Chris Storer’s highly original script and the wonderful chemistry of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis we get to go on fantasy dates all over Chicago,” said D’Amico. “It is going to be the perfect way to experience Chicago.”
“The film is Storer’s love letter to his hometown Chicago, and a throwback to classic relationship comedies from greats like James L Brooks and Cameron Crowe,” added Dubiecki.
