Peter Segal Joins A “Neighborhood Watch”

Peter Segal (“Get Smart”) is in negotiations to direct the comedy “Neighborhood Watch” for 20th Century Fox says Variety.

Jared Stern’s script focuses on a newcomer to a community who joins the neighborhood watch and discovers supernatural elements are afoot. Previously David Dobkin was attached to direct and Will Ferrell to star but that pairing fell apart over the Summer.

Segal was developing the sequel to “Get Smart” until the film was delayed again by Warner Bros. Pictures.
