Stiller in Neighbourhood Watch?

Ben Stiller is apparently in talks to star in new sci-fi film Neighbourhood Watch.

The Meet The Parents star recently finished filming comedy Tower Heist and has been looking for his next project, narrowing it down to Neighbourhood Watch and the remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Hollywood Reporter's HeatVision blog reports.

Neighbourhood Watch tells the story of a group of fathers who pretend to start a group in the suburban neighbourhood - as a cover to allow them to get away from their families and have some male-bonding time.

But the plan backfires when they accidentally stumble across a plot to destroy the world.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote a recent draft of the script and Saturday Night Live's Akiva Schaffer is in talks to direct the film.

Ben has reportedly met with Akiva to discuss the project but is still to make a decision.
