New Line buys ‘Going the Distance’

Studio nabs pre-emptive purchase of comedy

New Line is “Going the Distance” with a pre-emptive purchase of tryo scribe Geoff LaTulippe’s romantic comedy spec script.

Story centers on a couple trying to maintain a long-distance relationship while one lives in Chicago and the other resides in Los Angeles.

LaTulippe, who’s been a script reader at New Line for four years, credited creative exec Dave Neustadter with helping develop the story.

“The essential story is that the couple knows that the long-distance relationship is probably a bad idea but they like each other too much to stop,” he said. “It’s a hybrid of Dave’s relationships.”

LaTulippe sold the script without representation.
