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.

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.
