Ben Stiller is in talks with Tom Cruise about starring in an updated comedic version of The Hardy Boys for 20th Century Fox.

According to TMZ, the title has been set as The Hardy Men; it'll be directed by Shawn Levy. The Hardy Boys detective novels date back to 1927, though a variety of ghost writers using the pen name of Franklin W. Dixon kept Frank and Joe Hardy perpetual teenagers. The Hardy Men would see them finally grown up, but up to their old tricks once more.

No official production schedule has been set for the film.
