Galifianakis, Adams Go To ‘Town House’ For Scott Brothers

Fox 2000’s dramedy Town House is coming together after a long gestation period.

Variety reports that Zach Galifianakis and Amy Adams are said to be in talks to star in the film that Once helmer John Carney came aboard 2007. Ridley and Tony Scott are producing.

The story, Variety says, is loosely based on Tish Cohen’s debut novel of the same name, which 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.

Fox 2000 is eyeing a summer 2010 start date.

This would be a detour from the comedy roles Galifianakis has lined up since his breakout in this summer’s The Hangover.

Adams recently wrapped production on David O. Russell‘s The Fighter, alongside Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.
