If the constant construction and roadwork wasn’t bad enough, production on a new ensemble romantic comedy will simultaneously clog Hell Square later today. The standard “no parking” signs are in place, cordoning the area near the corner of Essex and Stanton Streets. The film in question is called Sleeping with Other People, and stars Jason Sudeikis, Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, and Natasha Lyonne.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is the monetary muscle behind the movie, which is written and directed by Leslye Headland (Bachelorette).

The plot was described as follows by the film’s financiers:

[Sleeping with Other People is an] edgy romantic comedy about a womanizer named Jake (Sudeikis) and a serial cheater (Brie) who form a platonic relationship to overcome their chronic infidelity in this witty, contemporary take on modern dating — in the vein of When Harry Met Sally … but with assholes.
