Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis are set to star “You Are Here”, the feature directorial debut for “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner which is set up at Gilbert Films. Discussions are underway for Amy Poehler to co-star.
Weiner penned the script which story follows local weatherman and freewheeling bachelor Steve Dallas (Wilson) and bi-polar man-child Ben (Galifianakis), childhood best friends who embark on a road trip home after Ben discovers that his estranged father has passed away.
Once there, Ben is shocked to learn that his eccentric father had big plans for him and he’s inherited a whole lot more than his father’s money.
As Ben struggles with his new responsibilities, his friendship with Steve is tested by the complications of his inheritance, his sister Terry’s (Poehler) ambition, and Steve’s desire to be with his father’s beautiful young widow Angela.
Gary Gilbert, Scott Hornbacher, and Jordan Horowitz will produce. Shooting kicks off in May in North Carolina.
