Andy Samberg (SNL) and Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) will co-star in a romantic comedy together called Celeste and Jesse Forever, which was written by actor/screenwriter Will McCormack (Boiler Room, Elf) and it will be directed by Lee Toland Krieger (The Vicious Kind).
The story follows a couple that is getting divorced, but at the same time they want to remain friends. Rashida Jones gave little more in-depth explanation of the story,
Our movie is about two people who love each other a ton but they don't know what to do with that love, and how do you let that person go. It's very different from: 'I like having sex with this person because I'm so modern but then, ooh, maybe I like them.' I'm less interested in that story. It's the version of 'When Harry Met Sally' 20 years later, or 'Blue Valentine.' It's really about how you break up with someone.'
Samberg and Jones are both very funny individuals and they should make a great team in this new comedy.
