Director Peter Segal in Talks to Join Neighboorhood Watch

December 18, 2009

Peter Segal

When the 2009 Black List was released, there were more than a few screenplays that had serious activity in development, but remain unproduced. One such screenplay was the Jared Stern written Neighborhood Watch, a comedy that follows a suburban neighborhood watch group, actually a front for dads to get some male bonding time away from the family, as they stumble upon a plot bent on destroying the world. The project once had Will Ferrell and David Dobkin attached to star and direct respectively, but that fell apart and now Variety is reporting that Peter Segal (seen above) is in talks to direct the supernatural comedy.

As far as what is threatening the neighborhood and essentially the world has yet to be revealed, so we'll just have to wait and see. Otherwise, the trouble with this project so far is that it sounds like getting Peter Segal (director of such average comedies as Get Smart and 50 First Dates) might just be 20th Century Fox settling for second best. But if Fox can get together a group of male leads similar to the hilarious group from Hot Tub Time Machine, then we might be in for a surprise. I'd love to see Peter Segal deliver another great comedy that he hasn't since Tommy Boy. Once any official announcements are made, we'll keep you posted.
