Mad Men Creator Plans Rom-Com

Adjust your razor-sharp suits and take another slug of bourbon: the creator of Mad Men is planning to make a romantic comedy called You Are Here, starring Jennifer Aniston and The Hangover breakout stars Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis. But don't hold your breath, since shooting won't start until 2011.

Matthew Weiner, who came up with the hit show about 1960s ad men on New York's Madison Avenue, was planning to film this during the show's break from shooting at the beginning of 2010, but changes to the show's schedule meant that production has to move back a full year and will now start in 2011. In something of a vote of confidence for the script, all three stars are apparently trying to juggle their schedules to fit.

Weiner also has a deal with Lionsgate that will see him developing two more feature films for them, but again those are some way off.

In summary, nothing happening over here yet; you can go about your business. But if you're a Mad Men fan, rest assured that the guy behind it is getting the chance to strut his stuff on the big screen too.
