Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to Re-Write Pete Segal’s NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

     November 16, 2010


The upcoming Pete Segal-directed Neighborhood Watch will undergo a re-write by none other than Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (far right, above), who previously penned behind such hits as Pineapple Express and Superbad.   According to Heat Vision, the story “concerns a suburban ‘neighborhood watch’ group, which is actually a front for dads to get some male bonding time away from the family. Things go awry when the group accidentally uncovers a plot bent on destroying the world.”  Hit the jump for more on the project.

evan_goldberg_seth_rogen_01Neighborhood Watch has an interesting production history, to say the least. Originally set to be directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) as a Will Ferrell vehicle, the film later passed hands to Pete Segal and producer Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), with Jared Stern (Bolt) responsible for penning the original screenplay.

Admittedly, that’s not the most electrifying lineup of names or talent…but that’s what makes Rogen and Goldberg’s involvement with the project so darn appealing. If there’s one thing Pineapple Express and Superbad weren’t, it was ‘studio-tampered’–both films positively brimmed with rude contempt and irreverent energy. Just imagine what this The Burbs-like story could be like if that same sort of naughty indolence were brought to it.
