Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill in Talks to Reteam for ALOHA; Shawn Levy Will Direct

     July 21, 2012


Though we’ll see Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill team up for next month’s sci-fi comedy The Watch, the duo is already planning another project together.  THR reports that Stiller and Hill are attached to star in the comedy pitch Aloha, with Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy set to helm.  Plot details are under wraps, but the story is described as an island-set comedy.  Hill hatched the idea for the project himself, which was then further fleshed out by Hill, Stiller, and Levy on the set of The Watch (which Levy produced).  Hit the jump for more details.

shawn-levy-alohaPer THR, Get Him to the Greek and The Muppets co-writer Nicholas Stoller is in talks to pen the script for 20th Century Fox, with Stiller, Hill, and Levy all acting as producers on the film.  Though all three creatives are currently attached to Aloha, their final involvement will depend on scheduling and Stoller’s script.  Hill is next set to star in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, and he’s also poised to return for the much-welcomed 21 Jump Street sequel.  Stiller, meanwhile, just recently began post-production on his next directorial feature, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

As for Levy, he’s got a bounty of projects in the pipeline at the moment.  He’s currently filming the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy The Internship, but there are a number of things he’s considering for his follow-up.  Before committing to The Internship, Levy’s two priority projects seemed to be Fantastic Voyage and Frankenstein.  Depending on how the development of those two films has progressed, he could ostensibly tackle one of those larger films after he finishes his comedy.

Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse has been writing a secretive project for Levy to direct with Hugh Jackman in the lead that could also move forward soon, and there’s also a sequel to Real Steel that may or may not come to fruition.  Moreover, the director just recently became attached to direct an adaptation of the kids series The 39 Clues for DreamWorks, so as you can see he’s got a lot to sift through.
