Once you get in good with these Ben Stiller/Judd Apatow types, you're pretty much set. Apatow remixes the same cast over and over again, and Stiller has teamed up with practically everybody under the sun at one point or another. Next week he'll join Vince Vaughn, Richard Ayoade, and Jonah Hill in the sci-fi comedy, The Watch, but he's already planning another flick with Hill attached.
Stiller and Hill are in talks for Aloha, a comedy featuring a script by Nicholas Stoller and directed by Shawn Levy. Stoller worked with Hill on Forgetting Sarah Marshall, while Levy manned both Night at the Museum flicks. He also served as a producer on The Watch, where the plot was apparently fleshed out.
Details are under wraps, but it's being described as an island-set comedy, which was obvious from the title. Nothing's confirmed yet, though, as schedules need to be worked out. If all comes together, though, Fox could be looking at another hit on their hands. And if not, at least Hawaii makes for a nice place to shoot a movie. [THR]
