Sony Invited To Jason Sudeikis' "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy"

Jason Sudekis is having quite a year.

No longer just "that guy from SNL," Sudekis starred in 2010's "Going the Distance," did a guest spot on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "30 Rock," and oh yeah, he dated "Mad Men" star January Jones (they've since broken up). He also has "Hall Pass" coming up with Owen Wilson and now comes news about another one of the actor's projects.

According to Variety, just before the start of the Berlin Film Festival, Sony Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films announced that they picked up the domestic rights to Sudeikis' comedy "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" from Essential Entertainment.

The story follows a group of 30-somethings who spend every summer weekend throwing elaborate theme parties and eventually they throw one final bash – an orgy. Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory ("King of the Hill," "Frasier") make their co-directorial debut on the project, which is being looked at for a late summer release.

I'm glad Sudekis has been making his way up the star ladder recently--I think he's one of the more talented comedians working on "SNL." Another thing that this project has working in its favor is the late summer target date. Just a few years ago a film got released towards the end of the summer, maybe a little overlooked, remember "Superbad"?

"A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" could really appeal to the Judd Apatow-crowd and with Sudekis in one of the lead roles, it could be a summer surprise.
