Conviction star Sam Rockwell is in talks to star opposite Jonah Hill in the 20th Century Fox comedy The Sitter, reports The Wrap.

Jonah Hill stars as a college dropout who agrees to look after three mischievous children as a favor to his mother. He's forced to take kids with him while he scores some drugs for a girl, but when the deal goes bad, the night turns into a wild chase through New York City, where Jonah Hill proves his mettle as a babysitter.

Sam Rockwell will play a villainous drug dealer along with J.B. Smoove from Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Max Records, Kevin Hernandez and newcomer Landry Bender play the trouble-making children, while Ari Graynor will play the female lead.

David Gordon Green directs The Sitter, which is currently filming in New York.
