BREAKING: Universal Pictures has set Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis to star in One Night On The Hudson, a TJ Fixman-scripted comedy that will be directed by Seth Gordon. Mary Parent and Cale Boyter are producing at Disruption. This shapes up as a re-team between Day, Sudeikis and Gordon from Horrible Bosses, the New Line comedy that is in the process of being sequelized. The logline: rookie cop and the criminal he caught go on the lam from crooked cops.

Sudeikis continues as a castmember on Saturday Night Live and next stars in New Line’s We’re The Millers, while Day continues to star in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. He also is part of the ensemble of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, which Parent produced for Legendary Pictures. Gordon just directed the hit comedy Identity Thief for Universal. Gordon is producing as well. Fixman is repped by WME and Fourth Floor Productions’ Jeff Silver.
