Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller are the patron saints of awkward sex comedies after 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' and it appears the duo may team-up again for 'Sex Tape.' Deadline reports that Segel and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to co-star in the film, a raunchy comedy about a married couple who decides to spice up their sex life by incorporating a video camera -- a great idea, until the tape of their sexual exploits goes missing.
Sony purchased the spec script for 'Sex Tape' by writer Kate Angelo in June for a reported seven-figures. If Stoller directs, it would be his third time doing so with Segel as star; in addition to 'Sarah Marshall,' Stoller directed Segel in 'Five-Year Engagement,' which is due in 2012. The two also co-wrote the script for 'The Muppets.'
As for Witherspoon's involvement. Variety reporter Jeff Sneider wrote on Twitter that the Oscar-winning star is a "long-shot" to appear in 'Sex Tape.' Other actresses who may star include Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Rose Byrne and Jennifer Garner.
