Billy Crudup Infiltrates The 'Neighborhood Watch'
Every town has one: the creepy, weird, maybe slightly off (to put it nicely) resident. And now the sci-fi comedy "Neighborhood Watch" may get one too, as Billy Crudup is in talks to join the cast as the not-quite-all-there neighbor in question.
The tall, dark and quirky Crudup would join an A-list lineup led by Ben Stiller that also includes Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Will Forte and Rosemarie DeWitt, The Hollywood Reporter recounts.
Penned by Seth Rogen, his mainstay writing partner Evan Goldberg and Jared Stern (the scribe behind "Mr. Popper's Penguins" — but don't hold that against him), the story centers on a suburban neighborhood watch group created by a homeowner after a local murder occurs. They find themselves just a wee bit in over their heads, however, when they uncover an alien plot to destroy the world.
If only we had a dollar for every time that happened to us.
With "Saturday Night Live" alum Akiva Schaffer anointed for the director's chair, this is one alien invasion that promises some good old-fashioned cinema fun.
