McDonough for Mall Cop 2 villain?

Neal McDonough is in talks to play the villain in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

Kevin James is returning to star as the title character in the sequel to the 2009 action comedy about a mild mannered security guard whose shopping mall is taken over by a criminal gang.

The follow-up film sees Paul Blart working as a security guard at an expo in Las Vegas. Casino security mocks him, but he gets the last laugh when he helps them take on a gang of art thieves.

Neal - who played S.H.I.E.L.D agent Timothy 'Dum Dum' Dugan in Captain America: The First Avenger - will play the criminal mastermind behind the heist, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Molly Shannon and Nick Turturro are already signed up to star in the movie, which will be directed by Andy Fickman.

Shooting is due to being in April.

Adam Sandler's Happy Madison company are among the producers.
