Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Move Into "Neighborhood Watch"

Movie News

When Seth Rogen and writing partner Evan Goldberg take on a script, hilarious things happen--take "Superbad," for example. So, its welcome news that the duo are set to do a re-write on the upcoming comedy film "Neighborhood Watch," according to Heat Vision.

The story, initially conceived by studio exec John Fox, concerns a suburban "neighborhood watch" group, which is actually a front for dads to get some male bonding time away from the family. Things go awry when the group accidentally uncovers a plot bent on destroying the world. In their somewhat over-enthusiastic approach, they stumble upon supernatural evil afoot on their block.

Shawn Levy will produce the film, in which Will Ferrell was originally slated to star, but no actors are currently attached. The project has jumped around a bit, having once had Levy and David Dobkin attached to direct.

Rogen and Goldberg recently finished "The Green Hornet," which is set for a release in January.
I think this is the perfect type of script for these two take on, considering how successful they have been with writing suburban comedies. From "Superbad" to "Pineapple Express," they have shown that the suburban setting is perfect for their brand of comedy.

Rogen would even be a nice fit to star in the film, but even if he just stays on as a writer this project should be better for it.
