Jon Hamm didn’t get to show off his comedy skills much in Mad Men, but he can be a very funny man. He’s hoping to show that off as THR reports that Hamm and Zach Galifianakis are in negotiations to team up for Keeping Up With the Joneses.
Greg Mottola (Paul, Adventureland) is set to direct the comedy, which is about a type-A couple who move into a peaceful suburban neighbourhood. However as so often in these types of movie, thing don’t quite turn out as they’d hoped, as they discover that their seemingly-perfect neighbours are actually covert agents.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie McDonald are producing, after developing the project for the past two years. It’s not clear when it will shoot, although Jon Hamm has plenty of time to fit it into his schedule as he’s recently finished filming the final season of Mad Men.
