Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is ready to get started on his feature film You Are Here, a romantic dramedy that started pre-production last year before it got derailed by Mad Men's filming schedule.
When the movie was first announced Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Jennifer Aniston were attached to star in the film, but not anymore. According to Pajiba Jack Black, Matt Dillon, and Renee Zellwegger are currently attached to the film project, and there’s an offer out to Rachel McAdams. Of course there's a possibility that any of these names can change before production begins.
You Are Here is about about two roommates in their 30s, preoccupied with dodging the responsibilities and rigors of adult life. That is, until the sudden death of one of the men’s fathers, which makes his unstable son the new owner of a general store, a country home and millions of dollars worth of Amish farmland.
Black is set to play the “unstable son” (which was previously the role Galifianakis was attached to, who I would’ve loved to see in this part), with Dillon as his “skirt-chasing, hard-partying roommate”. Zellweger is said to play Black’s sister, jealous and angry over her omission from her father’s will. Finally, McAdams, if she accepts the part, would play the father’s widow.
They hope to start shooting the film early next year.
