Will Ferrell remaking Tom Hanks Burbs?

    According to Variety, Will Ferrell is in negotiations to headline Neighborhood Watch, a comedy about a city guy who moves to the suburbs and stumbles upon a mammoth conspiracy. David Dobkin (The Wedding Crashers, Fred Claus) is in talks to helm. So I read this last night at about 3 in the morning (yes I know sad) and I couldn’t help but think this sounded a lot like “The Burbs” starring Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher (reunited after The Man with one Red Shoe), and the infallible Cory Feildman. Then as soon as I logged off and turned on HBO Comedy they were playing-you guessed it-The Burbs! I forgot how much I loved that movie, and I forgot how long ago 1989 was, then I sat there half-laughing, half feeling really old.
