As much fun as a catfight between Jessica Biel and Mila Kunis would be, the only time Biel's boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, is making time with Kunis is on set.

Bummer though that may be, the big news is that the title for the pair's big screen romp, 'Friends With Benefits,' has been given the all-clear by Paramount. Seems that both Screen Gems (the studio behind the Timberlake/Kunis film) and Paramount were working on films called 'Friends with Benefits' and that Paramount, whose 'Friends' movie is being directed by Ivan Reitman and stars Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher and Kevin Kline, had lodged a complaint about it. (For the record, the film, which finds Kutcher hopelessly devoted to Portman, was originally called 'F*** Buddies' but then changed to be more multiplex-friendly.)

According to the Hollywood Insider, though, as sometimes happens in Hollywood, they're no longer miffed, have dropped the complaint and Screen Gems is free to begin production on the movie about "two friends who's relationship gets complicated when things get romantic" in July in Los Angeles and New York.

The kicker? NBC has a midseason replacement comedy on the books called, you guessed it, 'Friends with Benefits.' This one, from the ripe minds of '(500) Days of Summer' writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, is about friends looking for love but settling for, well, you get the picture. And although the show doesn't yet have an air date, an NBC spokesperson told EW they expect the movie(s) will have to change titles. For its part, Screen Gems, citing production timetables, doesn't expect there to be any problems with the duplication.
