Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has signed on to direct his first movie, Reuters reports. The film, titled You Are Here, was written by Weiner years ago. It will star Owen Wilson and Zach Galifinakis as a pair of friends who head off on a road trip after a family death. Amy Poehler is close to striking a deal to star as the sister of Wilson's character. The film is scheduled to shoot in May.

"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 statement. "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."

Weiner's work on Mad Men has earned four Emmys for best drama, one for each season it has been on the air. The first episode of the new season, which premiered on Sunday night, drew the show's largest viewership to date. Prior to his work on Mad Men, Weiner was a staff writer for The Sopranos.
