Jenna Fischer Gets A “Hall Pass”

“The Office” star Jenna Fischer is in negotiations to play Owen Wilson’s wife in the Farrelly Brothers comedy “Hall Pass” for New Line Cinema says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on a New England married couple in which the wife gives her husband a “hall pass,” a free ticket to engage in extramarital encounters.

Jason Sudeikis stars the guy’s best friend, who gets a similar free pass from his wife (yet to be cast). Things get complicated when the wives also begin exercising their “hall pass” power.

Pete Jones, Kevin Barnett and both Peter and Bobby Farrelly penned the script. The Farrellys and Bradley Thomas are producing. Filming kicks off February 23rd in Atlanta.
