John Carney Hires A Town House

Fox 2000 has set John Carney (“Once”) to direct “Town House” reports Variety.

Story revolves around the son of a dead rock legend who has managed to live as a recluse by slowly selling off his dad’s memorabilia.

But he runs out of things to sell and is forced to sell the townhouse his father left him.

The imminent sale forces the man to come to terms with himself and his role as a father to a teenage son.

The Doug Wright-scripted comedy, which will shoot on the East Coast, is based on a novel by Tish Cohen and begins production in January.
