While nothing is as exciting as hearing the plot synopsis for the planned Arrested Development movie (yeah, I’m a fan), I’ll admit I’m more than a little intrigued by the Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn team-up Neighborhood Watch. The project has long been in development hell, but recently the pieces have been falling into place. The latest bit of news comes courtesy of THR who report that Rosemarie DeWitt has joined the Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod) directed comedy, and is set to play Stiller’s wife.
The film centers on a group of dads who use a “Neighborhood Watch” group as an excuse to be away from their families. However, things go amiss when they uncover a plot to destroy the world. DeWitt was recently seen on Showtime’s The United States of Tara, and has starred in such films as Rachel Getting Married and The Company Men. The actress has a full slate of projects in production, including the upcoming The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
