For several years to no avail, Mad Men creator Matt Weiner has been trying to launch his feature-film debut, You Are Here, during his TV show's off-season. A while back, it was intended to shoot with Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Jennifer Aniston, then, after production was placed on hold, Jack Black, Matt Dillon, and Renee Zellweger were rumored to come onboard. Today, though, Weiner announced that Galifianakis is back in, Owen Wilson will star, Amy Poehler is in negotiations, and the whole thing will shoot in May. Wilson and Galifianakis will play roommates who fall for the widow of Galifianakis's father, though they also have to deal with his ambitious sister (Poehler). Good luck, talented people!
