Zach Galifianakis Back to 'Mad Men' Creator's First Film 'You Are Here'
Back in 2009, the breakout star of The Hangover, comedian Zach Galifianakis, was attached to star in the first film from "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner along with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston. However, the film was delayed due to production on the fourth season of the hit AMC drama series. Then a year later Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renee Zellweger had stepped in to star, but we haven't heard anything on the project since then. Now it sounds like the project is back on track again as THR reports Galifianakis is returning to the film and Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler will be coming with him now.
You Are Here follows two roommates in their 30s, preoccupied with dodging the responsibilities and rigors of adult life. One is a bumbling, pothead heir and the other is described as a skirt-chasing weatherman, who drinks, smokes pot, and objectifies women. The sudden death of one of the roommates' fathers makes his unstable son the new owner of a general store, a country home and millions of dollars worth of Amish farmland. I'd bet that Galifianakis is playing the pothead and Wilson the womanizer, but it would be funny to see those roles reversed. Hopefully with the future of "Mad Men" already planned at AMC, this will allow Weiner to finally direct the feature while the show is on break between seasons. As a huge fan of the series, I can't wait to see what Weiner brings to the big screen.
