    Drew Barrymore and real life ex Justin Long, her co-star in this winter's smash hit He's Just Not That Into You, are teaming up onscreen once again. The pair, who split amicably last summer, will star in Going the Distance, a romantic comedy for New Line.

    The plot concerns a couple in a long-distance relationship who eventually come to terms with the fact that perhaps they both would be happier dating someone closer to home. Barrymore's character moves to Chicago to be a middle school teacher, while her beloved remains in California as a script reader. Nanette Burstein will direct.

    While Barrymore brought He's Just Not That Into You to Long's attention, it was who Long brought the spec for Distance to Barrymore.
