Zach Galifianakis and Amy Adams are quickly becoming two actors that I really enjoy, and so it’s nice to see that they’re both starring together in a film called Town House, which, according to Variety, is based on a novel by Tish Cohen about:
…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. Doug Wright and Carney adapted the screenplay.
I learned from House that agoraphobia is fear of public places (TV can teach you something). Development of the film began when John Carney came aboard in July 2007 but quickly broke down during the writers strike. Now it looks like the film will be released in the summer of 2010. It’s being produced in conjunction with Scott Free, Tony and Ridley Scott’s production company.
And so a movie description that I probably couldn’t pick out of a lineup suddenly attracts some expectation. This sounds like a great part for Amy Adams too because she’s so natural at being sympathetic; it’s betrayed in her voice. She was phenomenal in Doubt, and so I look forward to anything that she’s in.
