The comedy centers on a group of suburban father's who haphazardly form a neighborhood watch group, for the sole reason to get in some male bonding time away from their families. The plot intensifies when they come across a nefarious plot for world domination. It isn't clear which role Jonah Hill will play, although it seems unlikely that the 27-year-old actor will play one of the neighborhood dads. Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn have already signed on to play two of the fathers, with Rosemarie DeWitt in talks to portray Ben Stiller's wife.
Akiva Schaffer is directing Neighborhood Watch from a screenplay by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It is also noted that Jonah Hill is asking for considerably more than his usual price, and it isn't known if the deal will be completed.
Production is slated to begin sometime this fall, on location in Georgia.
