Can you imagine a man as easygoing as Jeff Daniels shacking up with your mother and booting you out of your home? We can’t either, but Jon Heder can.

Daniels – last seen in The Squid & The Whale – will co-star in Mama’s Boy, the previously announced comedy featuring Heder as a slacker still living with mother Diane Keaton. When her new boyfriend,  self-help guru (Daniels) moves in, Heder’s character is forced into open warfare to stay where he is.

Tim Hamilton’s directing from a script by Saving Silverman’s Hank Nelken.
