The Man In The House Across The Street: According to Variety, Salma Hayek is penning The Man in the House Across the Street as a vehicle in which to topline and/or direct.

The comedy deals with a Mexican woman married to an American drug dealer who is being investigated by a retired cop, himself a drug addict. Pic will shoot in Mexico and Los Angeles next fall.

Vergara said it remained to be seen whether Hayek's production company, Ventanarrosa, would be involved in the pic.
