Jay Roach Directing Comedic Vertigo Pitch

You may know the name Jay Roach, he's the genius director behind all the Austin Powers movies as well as Meet the Parents / Fockers. He's a powerful force (when working with Michael Myers) and has put together some great comedies. Now he's been signed onto another original comedy project from Ken Kaufman, currently untitled.

The film is described as an off-center comedy and was originally bought by Warner Brothers as a pitch. It follows two party-loving male friends who are as close as brothers. When one of them dies in a fluke accident, the other succumbs to grief, until he meets a stranger who eerily resembles his dead friend, only shorter and nerdier. He then sets out to corrupt him and refashion him into his lost buddy. It sounds awfully similar to Hitchcock's Vertigo, and if anything could be called a comedic version of Vertigo, or so we'll see. It sounds like it could be a solid comedy, or at least handled well in the hands of Jay Roach.
