Even though The Break-Up received shit reviews around the board, the film's genre and cast was still enough to push its box office numbers to better than respectable.

Seeing a couple diamonds in the rough, Universal has picked up Break-Up scribes Jay Lavender and Jeremy Garelick for a couple more films.

But, to be safe, shouldn't they have picked up Vince Vaughn too?

U Signs Jay Lavender and Jeremy Garelick

According to Variety, Jay Lavender and Jeremy Garelick will be hanging around the Universal lot as they try to punch out two more pitches for the studio.

Universal has signed a deal with the two scribes worth between $2 to $3 million. Scott Stuber and Mary Parent are set to produce both films when they are ready.

Garelick and Lavender will write both scripts, both high-concept comedies whose premises are being guarded for now. Scribes also will serve in some producing capacity on the projects.

Between the writing and production fees, deal could be worth close to $5 million if both scripts go into production.

For the time being, you can catch the duo's earlier work in theatres with The Break-Up.

Considering that Vince Vaughn had to be a big factor for the film's high bo, I am surprised his name wasn't listed somewhere on that contract.

Stay tuned for updates.
