Ferrell out of Hood

Will Ferrell and director David Dobkin have reportedly bailed on Fox’s NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH. The film is about a city-dweller who moves to the suburbs and…wait for it, uncovers an alien conspiracy. I’m betting that’s not what you thought the end of that sentence would be.

No word on why the duo left the film, though Dobkin did recently submit revisions to Jared Stern’s script. The project isn’t dead, but now has to start over more or less from scratch as it’s out one director and one overworked movie star.

Is Ferrell suffering from “goofy man fatigue” after his latest, LAND OF THE LOST, failed to deliver despite its previously working formula of Ferrell + cluelessness? Maybe he caught a glimpse of Simon Pegg’s PAUL and realized his alien comedy just couldn’t compete. Whatever the case, he’s on to greener pastures, ones that hopefully involve wearing a mustache and burgundy suit once again…

Extra Tidbit: In addition to ANCHORMAN 2, let’s hope Todd Phillips’ HANGOVER success hasn’t made him forget about OLD SCHOOL DOS where we’re all waiting to witness the return of Frank the Tank.

If he wants to be an actor that's cool, but he needs to stop playing the same character in every movie he's in. Yea we get it, you're "goofy" and "funny" and not the most intelligent person on the planet, now do something worthwhile again. Winter Passing and Stranger Than Fiction are where he's good. Old School and Elf and Talladega Nights aren't.

I think a sequel to Old School might be the only chance that Will Ferrell can come back to his old days.
