Ferrell on watch

05.06.2009

Some of my favorite types of movies: Movies that are based in the suburbs (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS). Movies that feature creepy conspiracies (HOT FUZZ). Movies about creepy conspiracies that are based in the suburbs (NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH!!). Will Ferrell is in talks to star in the new film as an urbanite who moves to the suburbs, joins the neighbourhood watch, and discovers a large conspiracy within the community. I literally am drooling all over my pasty white thighs as I write this. David Dobkin (WEDDING CRASHERS) is set to direct the Jared Stern screenplay for 20th Century Fox. Even if this isn't quite your scene you must admit that it will be nice to see Ferrell playing an avergae dude in a world grounded in reality, as opposed to a guy running around with dinosaurs or a dude dressed in a giant elf outfit. I'm just saying.

The Burbs was awesome! Does My Blue Heaven count? Technically it took place in the suburbs.

I'm sketchy on almost anything Farrell does anymore but as "Suburb" movies go I gotta go with mallswan and say Blue Velvet.

Sounds like a remake...excuse me...reboot...excuse me....'reimagining' of that Tom Hanks crapfest The Burbs.

Maybe they can call Rick Ducomen to reprise his role. I don't think he's busy.

Arlington Road fits exactly what you are talking about. Suburbs and conspiracy in one movie.

Yeah

The Conversation with Gene Hackman is conspiracy movie based solely on how it's shot. Good stuff.

The 'Burbs

I love that cheesy Tom Hanks movie The 'Burbs. I can only hope this new WF movie can be half as great as that was.

Yeah, I was thinking The 'Burbs as well. '80s Hanks was hilarious.

As for this? It sounds fun so far.

Sounds neat

This project sounds neat-One 1975 film w/Peter Fonda Loretta Swift (M.A.S.H. t.v. series)and Lara Parker(Dark Shadows)- that's about a creepy(Devil worshiper's)community in the film "Race With The Devil"-this one needs remade or an updated version btw.
