Emmy Rossum and Justin Long have signed on as the leads in ‘Comet’.
Milestone Media is just getting underway with Comet, a quirky indie romantic comedy that stars Emmy Rossum (Shameless) and Justin Long. Sam Esmail is directing his screenplay, and Scott Stone and Farnaz Fahid are producing for Milestone along with Lee Clay and Anonymous Content’s Chad Hamilton and Steve Golin.
Set in a parallel universe, Comet bounces back and forth over the course of an unlikely but perfectly paired couple’s six-year relationship. “Comet is about the drama, comedy and utterly surreal state of heartbreak — a subject in which I am well versed,” the writer-director explained.
