Hendricks for Measure Of A Man

Christina Hendricks is being linked to Measure of A Man

Christina Hendricks is apparently in final negotiations to star in 70s drama Measure Of A Man.

The Mad Men beauty - who has recently been filming Ryan Gosling's directorial debut How To Catch A Monster in which she plays a single mother - will play the mother of a teenage boy whose fierce independence and new career is causing trouble in her marriage.

The coming-of-age drama is based on Robert Lipsyte's young-adult novel One Fat Summer set in the 1970s, Deadline reported.

Super 8's Riley Griffiths will star as a bullied teenager trying to cope with adolescence under the guidance of a reclusive Wall Street executive who gives him a summer job.

The screenplay has been written by A Single Man's David Scearce and will be directed by relative newcomer Terry Loane.

Production is expected to begin this summer in Connecticut and New York.
