Kunis joins Timberlake in ‘Benefits’

Thesp signs on to star in Screen Gems comedy

Mila Kunis will star opposite Justin Timberlake in Screen Gems’ comedy “Friends With Benefits.”

Project, to be directed by Will Gluck, is a romantic comedy about two friends who try to take their relationship to the next level. Script was penned by Keith Merryman and David Newman, with Gluck set to do a page-one rewrite.

Pic, which is being readied for a July start, marks one of myriad projects on the tarmac with the title “Friends With Benefits.” Paramount is eyeing a May start for its Ivan Reitman-helmed pic that has been alternately called “Fuckbuddies” and “Friends With Benefits.” NBC is mulling a comedy pilot with the same title for its fall schedule.

“Friends” is being produced by Liz Glotzer.

Kunis, who recently wrapped Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” most recently starred in “The Book of Eli” and “Extract.”

Gluck recently helmed the Emma Stone comedy “Easy A,” set for release by Screen Gems in September.
