It turns out that Vince Vaughn has got the hots for Universal Pictures; or is it the other way around? Either way, Vaughn and Universal have signed a two-year, first-look producing deal that will land Vaughn a minimum of three starring vehicles.

Vince Vaughn Teams with Universal

Vaughn has set in development Male Doula, a high-concept comedy based on his idea, to be scripted by Dana Fox.

Though I hated The Break-Up, Vince Vaughn will partner with its producer, Scott Stuber, with two other projects.

One is an untitled comedy Jon Favreau is scripting about couples that attend a retreat to reinvigorate their marriages. The other is Realtors, a satire about the cutthroat chase for commissions by rival realtors in the residential housing market. Okay, okay, watching Vaughn compete to sell property does have a lot of promise.

The deal between Wild West Pictures Show Prods. and Universal gives Vaughn some room to acquire pitches and spec scripts with a discretionary fund.

Vaughn received his first producing credit with Favreau on their Swingers follow-up Made.

"We came away feeling that he was one of the absolute smartest guys in the business, who attended to every part of the process with such focus and has a real touch for what is fresh and interesting for the culture," Universal Pictures chairman Marc Shmuger told Daily Variety. "We think Vince will find a long and comfortable place for himself here."

"I'm looking forward to working again with Marc, David Linde, Donna Langley and their talented teams," Vaughn said in a statement. "I had a great experience on The Break-Up, and the marketing team, led by Adam Fogelson, did a fantastic job with the film."
