Looks like Jennifer Aniston and Bradley Cooper will be getting together again — on-screen, with ‘Mad Men’ creator Matthew Weiner playing Cupid.
Variety reports that Weiner plans to make his movie directing debut with romantic comedy ‘You Are Here’. The film would star Aniston and Cooper (who were reportedly dating for about 47 minutes this summer), as well as Cooper’s ‘The Hangover’ costar, Zach Galifianakis.
Weiner, who wrote the screenplay back when he was a staff writer on ‘The Sopranos,’ had hoped to shoot the film during the current hiatus on ‘Mad Men’ (the season 3 finale of the Emmy-winning AMC drama aired Sunday.) Unfortunately, the scheduling demands for season 4 are forcing him to postpone the project until 2011. (‘Mad Men’ exec producer Scott Hornbacher is also a producer on ‘You Are Here.’)
It’s a measure of the prestige Weiner now commands in Hollywood that the three stars plan to juggle their schedules to accommodate the delay.
Weiner’s deal with ‘Mad Men’ production company Lionsgate also includes a commitment to a feature film for Weiner to write and direct, a movie separate from ‘You Are Here.’ Variety reports that he’s ‘just starting to kick around’ ideas for that project.
