Jon Hamm Eyes Sci-Fi Drama 'Marjorie Prime'

Jon Hamm is in negotiations to co-star in the sci-fi drama "Marjorie Prime," an adaptation of the acclaimed play by Jordan Harrison.

A finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for drama, the play centers on Marjorie, an aging violinist with arthritis whose memory is beginning to fail. Hoping to preserve what she can, Marjorie turns to a service that creates holographic images of deceased love ones just as the survivors would like to remember them.

Naturally, Marjorie wants to recall her late husband Walter the way he was in his 30s and 40s. According to Deadline, that's the role being circled by Hamm.

Michael Almereyda ("Experimenter") wrote and will direct the adaptation, which is expected to begin production in October.
