Jay Roach Sparks Laughs at Warner Bros.



Albuquerque-born filmmaker Jay Roach reportedly will direct an untitled comedy feature based on Ken Kaufman's pitch which has been sold to Warner Bros. Pictures.

Known to be skilled in delivering laughs as he did on "Austin Powers" series and "Meet the Parents" plus its sequel, Jay Roach is reportedly in charge to direct an untitled original comedy project for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Rights to develop the flick have successfully been obtained by the company from Ken Kaufman, who last penned Universal Pictures' animated adventure "Curious George." Apart from taking helming duties, Roach will also serve as the producer alongside his Everyman Pictures partner Jennifer Perini.

Described as an off-center comedy, pic focuses on two party-loving male friends who are as close as brothers. Things turn gloomy when one of them dies in a fluke accident, leaving the other succumbs deeply to grief until he meets a stranger who eerily resembles the deceased friend and sets out to refashion him into his late buddy.
