Sudeikis, Foxx Tackle “Horrible Bosses”

Jason Sudeikis (“Saturday Night Live,” “30 Rock”) and Jamie Foxx have joined “Horrible Bosses” for New Line and Warner Bros. Pictures says Risky Business.

The black comedy revolves around three frustrated friends who conspire to murder each other’s bosses with unexpected and rather calamitous results. The three bosses include a master manipulator, a sexually aggressive dentist (Aniston) and a weaselly scion (Farrell).

Sudeikis will play one of the three friends, a ladies man who gets a rude awakening when his boss dies and he is replaced. Jason Bateman and Charlie Day play the other two.

Foxx plays a con artist who dishes out advice on how to pull off the murders.

Seth Gordon directs from a script by Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley and Michael Markowitz. Brett Ratner and Jay Stern are producing.
