Olivia Wilde to star in Relanxious?

Olivia Wilde could be coupling up with Jason Sudeikis on the big screen in romantic comedy Relanxious.

The Change-Up star is tipped to play Barrett, an anxiety-ridden woman who is smitten by agoraphobic George (portrayed by Jason), reported Deadline.

The couple decide to limit their courtship to phone conversations so that their phobias aren't in the way of their blossoming romance, while working out if they should take the plunge and meet up in person.

Brie Larson is thought to be playing Barrett's sister, while Jason's Saturday Night Live castmate Fred Armisen is taking the role of George's friend, and only contact with the outside world.

The comedy, which marks the directorial debut of writer Christopher Storer, will start shooting this summer in Chicago.

Olivia - who was last seen in sci-fi thriller In Time alongside Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried - has completed filming comedy Burt Wonderstone with Steve Carell and Jim Carrey.

Jason, who starred opposite Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses, has been seen on the small screen in the final season of the HBO series Eastbound & Down.
