They just recently collaborated on The Dilemma from director Ron Howard, but now Universal and Vince Vaughn are heading back into the relationship comedy arena again. THR reports the Wedding Crashers star is teaming with Jeremy Garelick (write of The Break-Up) for The Insane Laws. The project is being revived out of turnaround from Columbia with Garelick also set to direct the script that he wrote himself. Based loosely Garelick's own life, the story follows two best friends and how their lives are impacted when their grown children fall in love, with one man's daughter becoming pregnant by his best friend's son.
A family comedy like this seems like an attempt by Universal to help people forget about the disaster that was Little Fockers, but considering The Break-Up was more grounded and enjoyable than your average romantic comedy, this could turn out to be all right. Though it has a cheesy title and sounds like its begging to be an over the top comedy of family misunderstandings, the script was enticing enough for Columbia to spend seven figures on it back in 2009. However, the fact that the studio couldn't get it off the ground is a bit disconcerting. Likely with Vaughn attached plenty of talent will follow. Interested?
