Ben Stiller and Akiva Schaffer Offered Neighborhood Watch


Akiva Schaffer — the Lonely Island guy that isn't Jorma Taccone or Andy Samberg — was offered a directing job on Neighborhood Watch, a new comedy about a bunch of guys who use their town's neighborhood watch as a front for cheeky male-bonding exercises. The only trouble? They uncover a plot to destroy the world. Ben Stiller has been offered the lead in Watch. The movie recently received a rewrite from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which means it will likely involve a ragtag bunch of nerdy guys with curly hair who actually get the girl. [Playlist/Indiewire]
