Mila Kunis makes ‘Friends’

Actress joins Timberlake on 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 1 rewrite.

Pic, which is being readied for a July start, is one of several projects with a similar title: 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 With Benefits” 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 directed the Screen Gems’ upcoming pic, “Easy A.”
