Andy Samberg to star alongside Rashida Jones in "Celeste and Jesse Forever"
Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones are set to star together in the dramedy “Celeste and Jesse Forever”. Written by Jones and her writing partner Will McCormick, Celeste and Jesse Forever follows a couple who attempt to remain friends while undergoing a divorce. Lee Toland Krieger will direct.
In an interview with 24 Frames, Jones compared the film to Blue Valentine and When Harry Met Sally -
“Our movie is about two people who love each other a ton but they don’t know what to do with that love, and how do you let that person go. It’s very different from: ‘I like having sex with this person because I’m so modern but then, ooh, maybe I like them.’ I’m less interested in that story. It’s the version of When Harry Met Sally 20 years later, or Blue Valentine. It’s really about how you break up with someone.”
My life as a TV pitch -
"While all the other kids are out getting up to mischief, Amy stays indoors watching PBS documentaries and clips of Furry Vengeance, wondering if Brendan Fraser will ever get his act together."
