Drew Barrymore and Justin Long are together again – but only on the big screen.

The former couple will team up again in the romantic comedy “Going the Distance,” according to Variety.

The film is said to be “about a young couple navigating their way through the perils of a long distance relationship who quickly discover that ‘going the distance’ might cost them everything they have, including one another,” the entertainment trade mag reported.

Justin told Ellen DeGeneres in January during an appearance on her talk show that despite their 2008 split, the two stars remain close.

“We’re friends,” he told Ellen about Drew. “She’s the best… She has this amazing ability to make anyone feel like at ease.”

Drew and Justin recently starred in “He’s Just Not That Into You” together.
