Columbia Pictures has picked up Outsourced, a comedy pitch from Timothy Dowling with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson attached to star. Eric Gold is producing through his Mosaic Media Group. Outsourced focuses on an American factory that is shut down and moved to Mexico and two men from the production line who venture south of the border to get their old jobs back. Columbia director of development Jonathan Kadin will oversee the project alongside co-president of production Doug Belgrad. Mosaic's George Gatins will oversee development of the project with Gold. Dowling is best known as the writer of George Lucas in Love, a short film parody that melded Shakespeare in Love with the making of Star Wars. He is repped by Endeavor. Vaughn most recently starred in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, while Wilson stars in the upcoming The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. The two are teaming for The Wedding Crashers. Both are repped by UTA.
