Variety reports that Universal Pictures has bought an untitled romantic comedy pitch by Gina Wendkos (Coyote Ugly, "The Princess Diaries" films) which will be produced by Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer and Media Talent Group's Geyer Kosinski.

The trade says the impetus for the pitch was a mutual desire by Jim Carrey and Angelina Jolie to make a movie together. Neither is formally attached at this nascent stage, but Wendkos devised a pitch that plays to their strengths and sounded good to them.

Carrey and Jolie will get first crack at the project. Wendkos scripted Hilary Duff's upcoming The Perfect Man. She is now writing It Should Happen to You, at Kate Hudson film at Sony, as well as Party Girl Chronicles for for New Regency and Fox.
