School For Scoundrels director Todd Phillips is still trying to decide which of the films he has bobbing away in his production pond he pluck out and turn into his next movie.

And he’s put another possible script into the mix- agreeing to produce and maybe direct The Fix Up for Warners.

Originally written by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas (who are now better known for creating the sitcom How I Met Your Mother), the story finds a regular bloke whose life is plunged into chaos when he’s falsely accused of a crime. A federal agent who wants to make up for the mistake joins him for a road trip to solve the case. Michael Colton and John Aboud – who just wrote The Comebacks for Fox Atomic – are polishing the screenplay.

Phillips is also pondering whether to make supernatural comedy Man-Witch for Warners and a sequel to Old School at DreamWorks.
