Rarely has a rough night of drinking paid off so well. Zach Galifianakis, breakout star of 'The Hangover' and HBO's 'Bored to Death,' is close to signing on to headline in 'Town House' alongside Amy Adams ('Julie and Julia'), according to report from Variety.

Doug Wright and 'Once' writer-director John Carney have adapted the screenplay from Tish Cohen's comical debut
novel for Fox 2000, and have been trying to build 'Town House' into a feature since 2007, only to be torpedoed by the writers' strike that year. Ridley and Tony Scott are producing the flick, and hoping to get started next summer. Rarely has a rough night of drinking paid off so well.

The story revolves around an agoraphobic New Englander who lives in a historic-but-crumbling building with his teenage son. He has to start dealing with adulthood as the royalties from his late rock-star dad start drying up. Into the picture comes a friendly call girl, one of several oddball types passing through the house.

Our take: 'Town House' has the potential to be 'About a Boy' meets 'Pretty Woman' -- but with wicked good Boston accents and more facial hair.
