Mad Men's Matthew Weiner Working on Feature-Film Debut With Jack Black, Matt Dillon


The man behind The Sopranos and Mad Men is opting for some lighter fare for his first feature film.

Weiner will helm You Are Here, a comedy centered around two bumbling, 30-something stoners.

Jack Black will play a clueless pothead whose father dies, leaving him suddenly in charge of a country home, a general store and millions of dollars worth of Amish farmland. Matt Dillon will portray his roommate, described as “as a skirt-chasing weatherman who drinks, smokes pot, and objectifies women.” That guy sounds like a winner!

Rachel McAdams is rumored to be in talks to play the father’s younger widow with whom Black and Dillon’s characters both fall in love. Renee Zellweger will also star as Black’s uptight sister who is jealous that she was left out of the inheritance. No word on when production is expected to start.
