Universal Pacts with Vince Vaughn


Universal Pictures has made a two-year, first-look producing deal with Vince Vaughn and his Wild West Picture Show Productions. Variety says the arrangement kicks-off with three features, each of which could be a starring vehicle for Vaughn.

Vaughn has set in development Male Doula, a high-concept comedy based on his idea, to be scripted by Dana Fox (What Happens in Vegas…).

He is partnered with The Break-Up producer Scott Stuber on two other projects. One is an untitled comedy Jon Favreau is writing about couples that attend a retreat to reinvigorate their marriages.

The other is Realtors, a satire about the cutthroat chase for commissions by rival realtors in the residential housing market.
