Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, who I feel has come unto his own enough that I can stop referring to him as “The Mac Guy,” are reuniting onscreen for an “observational comedy” (read: quirky romcom that pokes fun at the differences between men and women) called Going the Distance.
They’ll play a couple threatened by the obstacles posed by their long-distance relationship, reports the trade paper. Barrymore, 34, and Long, 30, previously costarred together in this year’s ensemble comedy He’s Just Not That Into You, which made $145 million internationally. Its filming also helped nurture the Barrymore-Long relationship.
So, yeah. Bad idea or worst idea ever? But you know what would kind of be a good idea? A movie about two exes who are so delusional about their so-called friendship that they actually agree to work on a movie together. It would be called Between Takes and star Katherine Heigl and Luke Wilson, who would eventually murder the living shit out of her at the end of the film. Box office gold, I’m telling you.
