Jonah Hill joining Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn's Neighborhood Watch
Ears are starting to perk up about NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH, a new comedy starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn to be helmed by The Lonely Island's Akiva Schaffer. It could be argued that both actors are a touch past their comedic peak, but it's still a combination that inspires confidence with the right plot.
Now also set to join the cast is newly skinny funnyman Jonah Hill, fresh off THE SITTER and 21 JUMP STREET. Everyone apparently has been loving him in the MONEYBALL trailer and now he's a hot commodity.
The plot of NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH follows the titular group headed by Stiller and Vaughn who uncovers an alien invasion. Uh, didn't see that one coming, did you? It sounds a bit ATTACK THE BLOCK-ish, albeit with less British teens and more middle aged white guys.
Hill's role is yet unclear, but they'll have to find some room to pay him as Stiller and Vaughn's salary's reportedly eat up a fair amount of the $90M budget. Spend more on CGI aliens, and you don't have too much to work with.
