Jonah Hill Joins The 'Neighborhood Watch'
Jonah Hill is now officially on the lookout.
Hill joins Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn in the comedy about a city-type who moves to the suburbs and uncovers a vast surveillance conspiracy going on in his otherwise sleepy little neighborhood. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the screenplay, with Akiva Schaffer ("Hot Rod") set to direct.
It will be good to see Hill reunited with Stiller -- they had a silly yet undeniably funny scene together as rival security guards in "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian." And Vaughn's intense, sometimes grating brand of comedy should go well with Hill's bewildered, often exasperated style.
Also, Jonah Hill is definitely going to look like a new man in this one, as he's slimmed down so much lately as to almost be unrecognizable. This sudden change in appearance was prompted by his preparing to play an undercover cop in "21 Jump Street," opening March 23, 2012.
Hill will next be seen changing the very fabric of baseball recruitment with Brad Pitt in "Moneyball," opening Sept. 23, and swearing a lot in "The Sitter," opening Dec. 9.
"Neighborhood Watch" will hit theaters on July 27, 2012.
