Ferrell and Dobkin Won’t be on Neighborhood Watch


Variety is reporting that Will Ferrell and director David Dobkin have departed 20th Century Fox’s Neighborhood Watch.

The duo were attached to the comedy in the spring, and Dobkin had recently submitted revisions to Jared Stern’s script.

The film centers on an urbanite’s journey as he moves to a suburban community, joins the neighborhood watch and uncovers a large conspiracy.

Shawn Levy is producing with Tom McNulty through their Fox-based 21 Laps.
