Jenna Fischer to Score Big Screen "Hall Pass"?

Twentieth Century Fox

As if Owen Wilson could do better than this...

Jenna Fischer is trading her cushy "Office" job for some big screen debauchery.

Fischer, who plays Pam on NBC's "The Office," is in talks to star alongside Owen Wilson in the big screen comedy "Hall Pass," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by the Farrelly brothers ("There's Something About Mary"; "Dumb & Dumber"), the film focuses on a wife who gives her husband permission to engage in extramarital affairs.

Wilson will play the husband while Fischer would step in as his wife. "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudekis plays the husband's best friend, who also gets a "hall pass" from his wife.

However, when the wives begin to exercise their own "hall pass" privileges, things start to get tricky.

Filming is slated to begin on February 23 in Atlanta (although the film is actually set in New England).

Fischer will next be seen on the big screen opposite Michael Douglas and Susan Sarandon in the drama "Solitary Man." Her previous film credits include "Blades of Glory" and "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story."
