Universal Pictures has acquired Never Happened from writing duo Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin, with Raja Gosnell set to direct.

The story line is being kept under wraps, though the project is being described as a contemporary high-concept relationship comedy in the vein of It's a Wonderful Life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gosnell directed last year's Yours, Mine & Ours and both Scooby Doo movies.

Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin both co-wrote the Disney's animated feature The Wild, which will be released in theatres this Friday.
