Jonah Hill is set to pair up with director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) and producer Michael De Luca for the comedy The Sitter. THR is reporting the movie will be following a college student who’s been suspended for the semester and as a result is living at home with his mother. He gets talked into babysitting the neighbor’s two boys and 8 year old girls, and undoubtedly shenanigans ensue. The film sounds like a modern Adventures in Babysitting.
We reported last year that Jonathan Levine was going to follow up his debut film, The Wackness, with The Sitter, but it would appear Levine has dropped out of the project to make the dramedy I’m With Cancer, staring Seth Rogen and James McAvoy.
While it’s hard to get excited with that synopsis, the rumor is the film will be rated R, and if that’s the case, I’m on board. The Sitter has a planned fall start date.
