It's the most unlikely love story of the year. And it just might be the surprise rom-com of the summer.

Check out the latest trailer for "Long Shot," a romantic comedy that stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron as two polar opposite characters who fall in love despite their vastly different backgrounds and careers.

Produced by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the film sees Theron as Charlotte Field, the US Secretary of State who is in the process of launching a major presidential campaign. Her White House aspirations are, however, put to the test when she unexpectedly falls for Fred Flarsky (Rogen), a frumpy freelance journalist who's been hired to work as her new personal speech writer.

"Long Shot" is directed by Jonathan Levine, who previously worked with Rogen on the films "The Night Before" and "50/50." It's also written by Dan Sterling (The Interview) and Liz Hannah (The Post).

Co-starring O'Shea Jackson Jr. and June Diane Raphael, "Long Shot," which has already earned strong reviews at SXSW last month, will be shown in theaters nationwide on May 3rd.

He's a hard-hitting political writer with a talent for trouble. She's the country's top diplomat with a talent for ... well, everything.

When Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) reunites with his first crush who also happens to be the current US Secretary of State, Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a surprise run for the Oval Office, Charlotte hires Fred to punch up her campaign speeches and their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world affair. But Fred's carefree indiscretions, past and present, could bring down her campaign before it even begins. The film redefines "international relations" with a profane, funny and unexpected love.
