Former Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Mila Kunis is girl-magnet Justin Timberlake’s latest friend with benefits. But no worries Jessica and JT fans – it’s only for the upcoming romantic comedy by director Will Gluck, appropriately titled Friends with BenefitsThe two young celebs play good friends who decide to try to direct their relationship to the romance department, and the film, written by Keith Merryman and David Newman, will document all of the awkward mishaps that often occur when any two friends begin smooching regularly. 

Gluck, who also directed the new comedy Easy A starring Zombieland’s Emma Stone, may have some competition from director Ivan Reitman in a currently untitled pre-production film of similar subject matter, starring popular actors Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, though few details on Reitman’s movie have been released.

Friends With Benefits begins production this month, so we can hope to see it on the big screen within the next year.  We will also see plenty more of the comedy’s two stars. Kunis, who recently appeared in Date Night and Book of Eli, was also cast in Black Swan, a drama-thriller about the cut-throat rivalry within the ballet world by director Darren Aronofsky.  Timberlake will star in David Fincher’s drama, The Social Network.  Fincher’s film is a story about the creation of Facebook and the tribulations faced by its founders.  Though Justin fans may be eagerly awaiting a new album – the last release, FutureSex/LoveSounds hit stores in 2006 – they may just have to settle for watching his baby blues in theatres instead!
