'Dupree' team sold on Uni comedy

Empty

The team behind Universal Pictures' "You, Me and Dupree" is reuniting for another comedy.

Universal-based Scott Stuber and Mary Parent have dipped into their development fund to pick up an untitled comedy pitch from "Dupree" writer Mike LeSieur.

While details are being kept under wraps, the project is a high-concept comedy set at a Las Vegas sales convention.

"Dupree" is currently Universal's third-most-successful film of the year. The comedy has made $130 million worldwide.

Stuber and Parent are producing. Universal's Donna Langley and Holly Bario are overseeing.

Stuber, along with Vince Vaughn, produced "The Break-Up," is Universal's highest-grossing film this year. Stuber and Parent are in postproduction on "The Kingdom," being directed by Peter Berg and starring Jamie Foxx.

LeSieur, who wrote "The Ballad of Paul Finley, Accountant" for New Line and "It Wasn't Me" for Warner Bros., is repped by UTA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Colden McKuin & Frankel.
