Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones to play divorced couple in Celeste and Jesse

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS and I LOVE YOU, MAN co-stars Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones are set to reteam for the romantic dramedy CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER, which Jones also co-wrote. If you think it'll be the usual romp you get with two NBC comedy stars, don't get your hopes up. The film follows a couple who gets divorced and attempts to remain friends and is expected to be more dramatic than anything Samberg has previously worked on.

Jones and co-writer Will McCormack have been working on the script for years, hoping to get an adult, female-oriented look at relationships off the ground (this was before BRIDESMAIDS). Jones describes the film as a slightly more dramatic version of a Judd Apatow movie, though Apatow is not involved with this film.

If you're looking for a template on what to expect with the film, rent 2009's THE VICIOUS KIND. That film's director, Lee Toland Krieger, will step behind the camera for CELESTE AND JESSE and his previous film starred some comedic actors (Adam Scott) in a dramatic story about love.

Sandler has a busy post-SNL schedule with this film, an indie comedy with Bill Hader and I HATE YOU, DAD with Adam Sandler. CELESTE is expected to film first with the Sandler comedy shooting later in the summer.

Typo at the end

You put Sandler in Samberg's place at the end. Easy to mess up since both got their big starts on SNL and similar names but thought you might wanna know.

Sounds good and I loved Hot Rod and think Samberg could actually do drama pretty well.

Dont know

I love Rashida Jones, but I dont think she will ever be a leading lady and I dont think she can carry a movie and the same with sandberg, but he could probably carry more silly comedies

If this is anything like "The Vicious Kind" then consider me in a seat opening weekend. That movie was terrfifc and is criminally underrated. I like the casting of Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg.

Also like Conz said, you called him Sandler in the last paragraph.

Hot Rod is amazing.

Andy is pretty damn annoying

on SNL these days, his shine kinda wore off years ago... but Hot Rod is a classic imo, love that movie. Love Rashida, but have no interest in this one. Also, you called him "Sandler," in the last paragraph

I think Samberg is funny. And Rashida is smokin'. Why there isn't a pic of HER, I have no idea. I wish they would ditch the movie titles w/ just the 2 main characters' names. Lame . . .
