You know, it's getting to the point where the only rom-com cliche more annoying than the girl desperate to find true love is the one where the girl doesn't believe in love. Nevertheless, we're intrigued by the premise of 500 Days of Summer, because the very talented Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have signed up to star.

The story sees Gordon Levitt's character fall head-over-heels in love with a woman who doesn't believe in love, played by Deschanel.

Debutant director Marc Webb will be calling the shots, from a script by The Pink Panther 2's Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Shooting starts in LA this week, but if you can't wait that long for your next Deschanel / Gordon-Levitt fix, you can see Zooey in this summer's The Happening and Joseph in G.I. Joe next summer. So, are the cast good enough to intrigue you despite the so-so premise?
