Owen Wilson to star in the debut film from the creator of Mad Men
Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis are set to star in the film directorial debut of MAD MEN creator Matthew Weiner.
YOU ARE HERE will be a comedy-drama that centers on a weatherman who is dependent on a best friend for his good times. When the friend inherits a business and some land from his father, the weatherman is forced to get his own life in order.
Amy Poehler is in talks to join the film as well. Weiner will produce the movie as a small-budget independent and plans to begin filming in late April.
Weiner has been trying to produce the film for almost a decade, with stars like Jack Black and Renee Zellweger in talks at various points. But now that Weiner has MAD MEN on his resume, he seems finally poised to bring this passion project to the big screen.
MAD MEN is not known for being very funny, but Jon Hamm has certainly proven himself to be quite the comedian. Maybe Weiner can convince his leading man to appear in the film as well.
