Jonah Hill will star and David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express”) is in negotiations to direct the comedy “The Sitter” for 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.
Hill plays a suspended college student living at home who gets talked into baby-sitting the three eccentric kids next door: two boys and an 8-year-old girl.
Michael De Luca is producing the project which is said to resemble 80’s classic “Adventures in Babysitting” (aka. “A Night on the Town”) in tone. Previously the likes of Zac Efron and Zack Galifianakis were involved at one point.
Shooting kicks off this Fall.
