Prolific screwball comedic duo Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan have confirmed they are to team up for new project Outsourced, it will be their fourth collaboration in three years.
The new film centres on two American production line workers who are forced to head for Mexico in a bid to reclaim their jobs after their factory is closed down and the work is outsourced south of the border, according to film magazine Empire.
Wilson and Vaughan have previously worked together on a long list of hit US comedies, including Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch and the forthcoming The Wedding Crashers, which have been heralded by some in the film industry as crucial in helping to rejuvenate a flagging American comedy scene.
Certainly the core group of thirty-something American comedians, branded the Frat Pack and including Ben Stiller, Owen's brother Luke and Will Ferrell, can boast unrivalled box office success in recent years.
And while signs may now be emerging that the rather generic formula is becoming over-familiar with audiences, movie history teaches us that if nothing else, convention and consistency in approach can make for comedic immortality.
