Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and (maybe) Amy Poehler line up for Matthew Weiner’s “You Are Here”

Owen Wilson and Zack Galifianakis

Considering how successful “Mad Men” is, it’s hard to believe that it took so long for Matthew Weiner’s directorial debut, “You Are Here,” to get off the ground. But it’s been three years since the “Man Men” creator first announced his plans to direct the film from the script he wrote, and it’s only finally coming together.

Variety is reporting that Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson have come on board to play two childhood friends who decide to go on a road trip after Galifianakis’s character received a significant inheritance following his father’s death. In addition, Amy Poehler is in talks to co-star as one of the movie’s female leads.

Gilbert Films is producing the project, and Lionsgate is handling the international sales. The flick was almost made in 2009 (starring Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper and Galifianakis) and then again in 2010 (with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renee Zellweger), but it seems like this time it might actually happen.

It helps that “Mad Men’s” fifth season is off to a strong start. “You Are Here” seems a bit lighter than “Man Men” in tone, but that could largely be thanks to the fact that it doesn’t take place in the 1960s. The characters sound in line with the “Mad Men” ones we’ve come to know in love, though. Galifianakis’s character is described as being unstable and Wilson’s is supposed to party hard and chase after the ladies. Poehler could play either Galifianakis’s sister or his father’s widow.

“This movie has been my passion for eight years and to see it come together with Owen and Zach and Amy is a dream come true,” Weiner said in a press release from Gilbert Films. “I can’t wait to get started because the movie is about everything I care about and I’m tired of reading it out loud to my friends.”

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
