Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to The Troubleshooter.

The script is written by John Hamberg (Meet the Parents, Along Came Polly, Zoolander), who will also direct and produce the film.

The Hollywood Reporter says the comic thriller about a mild-mannered TV installation technician who, after a case of mistaken identity, goes on the run from a pair of killers.

No production schedule is set for The Troubleshooter.
