Gabourey Sidibe looks pissed. The rest of them just look photoshopped.
Akiva Schaffer — the Lonely Island guy that isn’t Jorma Taccone or Andy Samberg — was offered a directing job on Neighborhood Watch, a new comedy about a bunch of guys who use their town’s neighborhood watch as a front for cheeky male-bonding exercises. The only trouble? They uncover a plot to destroy the world. Ben Stiller has been offered the lead in Watch. The movie recently received a rewrite from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which means it will likely involve a ragtag bunch of nerdy guys with curly hair who actually get the girl.

This could either be horrible, pandering shlock or halfway decent R rated mayhem. It’s up to you Hollywood.
You probably don’t need the rundown on the lineup here, but from l-r that’s Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena, Casey Affleck and, yep, Eddie Murphy. They’re the crew that works in a high-rise building where the penthouse is occupied by an unscrupulous businessman under house arrest. (He’s played by Alan Alda.) The Wall St. crook has taken the crew’s pension, and they aim to steal it back.

The Tropic Thunder gang is reuniting, this time on television. HBO has greenlighted Documental, a half-hour comedy pilot written and to be directed by Thunder co-writer/executive producer Justin Theroux. Theroux will star in the project with Thunder co-star, British comedian/writer/producer Steve Coogan. The pilot, which will film in London, stars Theroux as a documentary filmmaker who tracks down his idol, an equally inept filmmaker (Coogan), and documents his return to his craft.
