Peter Segal eyes ‘Neighborhood Watch’

Fox negotiating with director for supernatural comedy

Twentieth Century Fox is in talks with Peter Segal to direct “Neighborhood Watch,” the Jared Stern-scripted comedy that Shawn Levy is producing.

Segal, who last directed “Get Smart,” had been developing the sequel, but the film is being pushed again by Warner Bros.

That made him available for a supernatural comedy that previously had David Dobkin attached to direct and Will Ferrell to star. That duo fell out last summer.

The film focuses on a newcomer to a community who joins the neighborhood watch and discovers supernatural elements are afoot.
