“Funny People” or no, Universal still wants to be in the Judd Apatow business.  The studio has just picked up a new romantic comedy script from Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, two writers/producers from the Apatow stable of talent.  The studio plans to develop the script as a starring vehicle for Jonah Hill.  Yes, you read that right–Jonah Hill is now romantic comedy material.  The script is called “The Best Thing About Pam Rooney” and that’s about all I can tell you for now, beside the fact that Variety’s article describes the film as “high concept”.  I’m not sure if that term is meant as a dig at Hill’s leading man chops or if the best thing about Pam Rooney is that she is a wizard or something.
