Jones, Messina Explore “Monogamy”

Rashida Jones (“I Love You, Man”) and Chris Messina (“Julie and Julia”) are headlining the indie romantic comedy “Monogamy” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The cautionary tale will center on a young couple’s relationship and its trials. Dana Adam Shapiro (“Murderball”) will direct and co-wrote the script with Evan Wiener.

Shapiro, Jeff Mandel, Randy Manis and Tom Heller are producing. Production got underway this past Summer in New York.

The film will debut on the festival circuit in early 2010.

Shapiro is also attached to adapt and direct an adaptation of his novel “Every Boy” for Plan B and to pen the racial drama “Holler” at Screen Gems.
