Galifianakis and Adams to Star in Town House?


The stars are aligning. Zach Galifianakis, whose name seems to be popping up all over the place after the success of The Hangover, and Amy Adams, who is “enchanting,” are in talks to make a film by John Carney. You may remember his last film, Once, an original take on the musical. The project he’s helming is a dramedy entitled Town House.

According to Variety, the film is loosely based on the Tish Cohen novel of the same name. The plot centers on an agoraphobic man who lives with his teenage son in an inherited Boston town house. He befriends a call girl while reassessing his life after his father’s royalties begin to dry up.

Carney shares scripting duties with Doug Wright, of Quills previously. I am loving this casting announcement of Galifianakis and Amy Adams. Them getting to work with Carney just makes it even better. Just the sound of it makes it seem like a fall release. I can’t imagine Galifianakis reassessing his life in sunny Boston. We need snow and the cold.

Fox 2000 is eying a summer 2010 start date.

This point last year did anyone expect that we’d be seeing Zach Galifianakis as a headlining star alongside Amy Adams. (She’ll most likely be playing the call girl, because I can’t see her playing the teenage son. The same goes for Galifianakis; no way he can pass for a teen.)

Stay with us as we learn about the release date, supporting stars and such.
