When he wasn't making Jessica Pare sing "Zou Bissou, Bissou" for his Emmy Award-winning MAC series "Mad Men," series creator Matt Weiner was apparently writing a road trip comedy called You Are Here. For eight freakin' years. At last he's getting his passion project off the ground, and he's brought together comedy superstars Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler for his feature film directorial debut.
The plot… is a bit of a departure for fans of "Mad Men," but before you scratch your heads remember that this is the same guy who produced the Ted Danson sitcom "Becker" for two years. Deadline reports that Wilson will star as a TV weatherman who goes on a road trip with his man-child best friend Zach Galifianakis (ah… typecasting) after the death of his father. Wilson discovers that his father had bigger plans for him, and winds up dealing with his unexpected inheritance, his ambitious sister (Poehler) and his father's sexy young widow, with whom he becomes romantically interested.
Honestly, if it weren't for the presence of Weiner we'd be less than intereted in an Owen Wilson comedy with such a familiar-sounding plotline, but damn it, there's still some Weiner in there. We believe in Weiner here at CraveOnline, even if that "Zou Bissou, Bissou" thing was f*cking weird, right?
CraveOnline will be back with more You Are Here news after we Zou Bissou, Bissou.
