MAD MEN creator and executive producer Matthew Weiner has announced he is making his debut as a feature film writer/director with YOU ARE HERE, to star Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis. The film, which Weiner says has been his “dream project” for eight years, goes into production in North Carolina in May 2012. Wilson will play Steve Dallas, a local weatherman and freewheeling bachelor. Galifianakis will play Ben, Dallas’ bi-polar best friend from childhood. The buddy film will follow the pair as they go on a road trip after Ben’s estranged father dies. “This project has been my passion for eight years and to see it come together with Owen and Zach is a dream come true,” Weiner commented. “I can’t wait to get started because the movie is about everything I care about and I’m tired of reading it out loud to my friends.” MAD MEN recently returned to cable network AMC and will run at least two more seasons. Clearly, Weiner is looking for a life after the successful cable series and sees it in Hollywood.
