Friends With Benefits Filming in Nolita Tomorrow

Posted on: July 21st, 2010 at 6:18 am by

Friends with Benefits is coming to the neighborhood.  Indeed, between 7 am and 5 pm tomorrow, a substantial swath of Nolita will be monopolized for the film shoot.  According to flyers in the immediate vicinity, filming is centered on Prince Street between Mulberry and Bowery; also, Elizabeth Street between Prince and East Houston.

Friends with Benefits is a Screen Gems production starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis as, well, friends with benefits.  Yeah, it’s not just a clever name. But it is a romantic comedy.  Here is the plot via ComingSoon.net:

A headhunter recruits a magazine editor and since each is too busy to find a mate, they agree to sleep together with no strings attached. Things get complicated when the guy falls for the girl, who’s dating someone else.

And A-Rod is even rumored to be in this flick.  It would be his silver screen debut.

Yet, the most important question is whether J-Tim will give Mila his dick in a box…
