Former real-life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long worked together a bit on He's Just Not That Into You but now they'll get even cozier as the lead onscreen couple in the romantic comedy Going the Distance. The feature will be directed by Nanette Burstein, who last directed the documentary American Teen, and is described as an "observational comedy" about long distance relationships. Drew and Justin will play "a young couple navigating their way through the perils of a long distance relationship who quickly discover that 'going the distance' might cost them everything they have, including one another."
It seems like long distance relationships are more feasible than ever in this technological age, though they can still be difficult and problematic. I'm curious to see how the movie deals with this kind of relationship that many of us have had (or currently have!).
What about you? Intrigued? Do you think Drew and Justin are cute together (either onscreen or off)?
