'Mad Men' Creator Goes Romantic Comedy

November 10, 2009


Whether you loved or hated this summer's breakout hit The Hangover, I'm guessing you, like every other human, probably walked away from the film with one primary thought pounding at your braindoor: Why was Jennifer Aniston not in this instead of Ed Helms? I DON'T KNOW WHY. NO ONE KNOWS.

But relax; it is being corrected by Mad Men's Matthew Weiner:

With another season of "Mad Men" now under his belt, Matthew Weiner is getting serious about his feature career.

The creator-exec producer of the AMC/Lionsgate TV drama had planned to spend some of his "Mad Men" hiatus helming his first feature, a romantic comedy that he wrote during his "Sopranos" days. "You Are Here" has lined up indie financing and a marquee-friendly cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis.

I'm not sure how this movie will sweep the Primetime Television Emmys, but I'm confident it will find a way.
