“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is in talks to co-star in the science fiction dramedy “Marjorie Prime” based on Jordan Harrison’s novel which was a 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
The story follows an elderly, arthritic former violinist staring headlong into the decline of old age as her memories begin to fail. She engages a service that provides holographic recreations of deceased loved ones as their survivors would like them remembered.
Hamm is circling the role of Walter, an imperfect copy of her deceased husband as he looked in his 30s and 40s with whom she spends time.
Michael Almereyda (“Experimenter”) wrote and will direct the adaptation which begins shooting in October.
