- BEN STILLER WANTS TO JOIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Ben Stiller is pondering on starring in another long-planned film, Neighborhood Watch.
The LA Times reports that Stiller is seriously looking at the film which has been in the works for ages and has consistently attracted comedy types and directors to it, with Will Ferrell, Wedding Crashers' David Dobkin and Get Smart's Peter Segal all attached at different times.
If he did sign on, Stiller would play an experienced city dweller that moves out to the suburbs and is roped into joining the local neighborhood watch. Thinking it’ll be a boring chore of wandering the streets with a torch, he soon realizes there’s far more to the local streets than meets the eye, including some extraterrestrial encounters.
