Ferrell To Join Neighbourhood Watch
David Dobkin set to direct

06 May 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Will Ferrell and director David Dobkin are in talks to make Neighborhood Watch (or Neighbourhood in this country, we hope), a new comedy that will see them teamed up for the first time since Ferrell took a small cameo role in Dobkin's Wedding Crashers.

The story follows a big city guy (Ferrell, we're saying) who moves to the suburbs and joins the Neighborhood Watch. There, he uncovers a conspiracy.

Jared Stern wrote the screenplay, which Shawn Levy was set to direct before deciding to back out in favour of Dobkin, who last directed Fred Claus. Let's hope this turns out more The 'Burbs and less Bewitched on the suburban comedy scale.
