Brewing for a while, "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner's feature film debut has been through a few different incarnations. Way, back in 2009 Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis were the first names to line up for the movie that was in very advance planning to shoot last year. But in the fall of 2010, new names cropped up with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renée Zellweger all being eyed. But riding off the heat of the massive season five opener for "Mad Men," Weiner is building up his cast again and it's pretty strong.

Brewing for a while, "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner's feature film debut has been through a few different incarnations. Way, back in 2009 Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis were the first names to line up for the movie that was in very advance planning to shoot last year. But in the fall of 2010, new names cropped up with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renée Zellweger all being eyed. But riding off the heat of the massive season five opener for "Mad Men," Weiner is building up his cast again and it's pretty strong.

Galifianakis is still attached with Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler set to star in "You Are Here." Far removed from the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, the dramedy centers on two roommates in their thirties, of which one is a weatherman preoccupied with dodging the responsibilities and rigors of adult life, and depends on his best friend. That is, until the sudden death of his buddy's father, who inherits the family general store, a country home and millions of dollars worth of Amish farmland.

The project has been brewing for nearly a decade now, but believe it or not, it's actually going to happen. Filming is slated to start right at the end of April -- in the middle of the fifth season of "Mad Men." It will probably be nice for Weiner to leave the '60s behind and focus on something else while the rest of the world keeps up with what's going on with Don Draper. [THR]
