Hangover star Zach Galifianakis and Oscar nominee Amy Adams are in negotiations to star in a film together according to Variety. The project in question is entitled Town House, a dramedy for Fox 2000. The film has been under development for a while now and the addition of these two actors is just the kick it needs to start production.
Town House centers on an agoraphobic man, who lives with his teenage son in a historic Boston townhouse that he inherited from his rock star father. With royalties from his father’s work dwindling, the man is forced to come to terms with his life. A call girl strikes up a friendship with the man. The screenplay was adapted by Doug Wright and John Carney, which was loosely based on the book of the same name.
The film will also be directed by Carney, and produced by Ridley and Tony Scott via their Fox based Scott Free banner. The plot for this film sounds vaguely familiar. A damaged man, who finds companionship (free of charge) from a hooker? Where have we seen that before? No matter how contrived the story, Adams and Galifianakis definitely fit the parts in question.
They’re looking to start production on the film sometime next year, so I’m assuming a 2011 release is in the cards.
What do you think of Adams and Galifianakis teaming up for Town House?
