The movie grossed more than $115 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. It also over-performed in ancillary markets with the studio estimating it generated roughly $135 million in physical and digital home entertainment sales across North America to date, making it one of the top-performing DVD and VOD titles of 2013. Kay Cannon, who penned the original ‘Pitch Perfect,’ is writing the screenplay for the sequel.
Sidney Kimmel Entertainment (SKE) send word that they will independently finance and co-produce ‘Sleeping With Other People,’ an original romantic comedy written by Leslye Headland (Bachelorette), who will also direct. Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas and Natasha Lyonne are set to headline.
SKE describes the project as an “edgy romantic comedy about a womanizer named Jake (Sudeikis) and a serial cheater (Brie) who form a platonic relationship to overcome their chronic infidelity in this witty, contemporary take on modern dating — in the vein of When Harry Met Sally … but with assholes.”
