In a story from Variety, New Line Cinema has cast Justin Long (He's Just Not That Into You) in the romantic comedy Going the Distance.

The film will be directed by Nanette Burstein.

The screenplay was written by Geoff LaTulippe. It follows a man and woman engaged in a long distance relationship. Eventually they realize that they may find more success being with someone more centrally located.

LaTulippe was initially a script reader at New Line before he hit pay dirt by selling the script.
