Universal Pictures has acquired the comic pitch, The Best Thing About Pam Rooney, by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien and will develop the film as a starring vehicle for Jonah Hill.
Jonah Hill for The Best Thing About Pam Rooney
Hill is already onboard to produce with the scribes getting some extra skrilla by becoming executive producers. Cohen and O'Brien were also co-producers of Funny People and a product of Judd Apatow.
Jonah Hill has been keeping busy with the Universal comedy Get Him to the Greek -- in which the comic actor received his first gross participation -- and an untitled comedy directed by Jay and Mark Duplass. He also wrote, produced and starred in The Adventurer's Handbook, which is also set up at Universal.
