Justin Long and Emmy Rossum romances the cosmos in “COMET”

In any romantic movie, it’s often the script that makes it noteworthy, but it’s the characters that make the movie unforgettable. There is nothing better than watching two love-struck people full of idealistic notions to make us feel good especially during the love month.

But to make us really fall head-over-heels for the couple on screen, casting is key and their chemistry is crucial.

Such was the challenge faced by screenwriter/director Sam Esmail and lead stars Emmy Rossum and Justin Long in Solar Pictures upcoming movie “Comet.”

Since most of the screen time is devoted to the conversations between Kimberly (Rossum) and Dell (Long), the movie depends on their chemistry to get the narrative through. It was a good thing that the two stars had been friends long before filming. 
"Justin and I met at an improv comedy show that he was performing in…and I was so impressed with him,” Rossum said in an online interview. “We all went out for drinks afterward, and Justin and I had a real chemistry. We ended up developing a relationship over text messages — not flirtation, but just in a, 'This is a guy who sends funny pictures' sort of way,” she added.

This was one of the reasons why Rossum immediately suggested Long when she first landed the part in of Kimberly. On his part Long said he instantly fell in love with the script. 

To further develop their chemistry, Rossum said they went on a road trip together with director Esmail to Long’s cabin to bond, spending the weekend “horsing around on rowboats.”

Comet” tells the story of Kimberly and her polar opposite, Dell who first meet at a Hollywood cemetery where they’ve both come to watch a meteor shower. Kimberly is brilliant and beautiful and Dell is immediately enamored by her. As if cosmically drawn to each other, Kimberly ditches her date, runs off with Dell and under the night sky decked with luminous and falling stars, they begin their epic but often turbulent love story.

The upcoming anti-romantic comedy, “Comet” has already drawn comparisons to a lot of favorites--from Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “500 Days of Summer,” and even “Blue Valentine.” 

  Comet” opens in cinemas nationwide on February 25, 2014 and is released by Solar Pictures.
