Seeing as Horrible Bosses has abounded whenever We’re the Millers comes up, this news is all too fitting. According to Deadline, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis are looking to join the pot-based comedy that, up until now, was set to star Jason Bateman. Charlie Day is confused and frustrated at the moment.
Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball) is directing a script from Bob Fisher and Steve Faber (Wedding Crashers), which centers on a drug dealer who, in one last job, “pulls together a fake wife and two kids to pose as an RV road-tripping family.” The end goal? Smuggle 1,000 pounds of marijuana across the U.S.-Mexico border. Sudeikis, naturally, would be the pot dealer; Aniston is expected to play the prostitute-turned-fake mother.
Comparing those roles with their typical onscreen parts, I might see the both of them as a little too “clean” for such seedy roles — even if Aniston did a raunchy turn in Bosses rather nicely — but they’re certainly likable enough for me not to issue some kind of complaint. (And, to be fair, I suppose the same could have been said of Bateman, a guy who generally plays clean cut.) There’s no hint of when shooting might commence, though I’d expect a summer start, should the both of them get signed before long.
How do you feel about either taking a role in Millers? Is Sudeikis a suitable replacement for Bateman?
