Drew Barrymore gets ‘Going’

Actress to star with Long in New Line comedy

Drew Barrymore is “Going the Distance,” signing for the lead role in New Line’s romantic comedy opposite Justin Long.

“Distance,” to be directed by Nanette Burstein, is being produced by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot via their Offspring Entertainment shingle.

Penned by tyro writer Geoff LaTulippe, “Distance” is an observational comedy about 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.

The project reunites Barrymore and Long, who starred in New Line’s “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Barrymore’s Flower Films produced the ensemble comedy, which has grossed $145 million worldwide.
