Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis for Relanxious

Cowboys and Aliens

Story by Jack Foley

OLIVIA Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are to team up for a new relationship comedy called Relanxious.

To be directed by Christopher Storer from his own script, the film finds Wilde playing an anxiety-ridden character named Barrett, who takes up with an agoraphobic, played by Sudeikis.

The two engage in a courtship over the phone, discussing the dates they would go on if their phobias didn’t stand in the way.

But as the fantasies develop, they must decide if they can put aside their fears in order to find real-life romance.

Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki (Up in the Air, Juno), who is producing, said of the film: “It’s Storer’s love letter to his hometown Chicago, and a throwback to classic relationship comedies from greats like James L. Brooks and Cameron Crowe.”
