At the center of the Frat Pack, there has always been Ben Stiller. Even as Will Ferrell continues to endure the greatest fandom, as Owen Wilson earns celebrated Woody Allen roles, as Vince Vaughn continues to reach things the others can’t, Ben Stiller will always kind of feel like their leader. And as said leader, Stiller reserves the privilege of welcoming new members to the gang: now introducing Jonah Hill, who is in talks to reteam with increasingly frequent collaborator Stiller for the comedy film Aloha.
The Hollywood Reporter announces that a deal is being made to have Stiller and Hill star in the 20th Century Fox, to be directed by Shawn Levy. The movie is, as one would assume, set in Hawaii, and is based on an idea that came to fruition on the set of the upcoming Stiller-Hill (Hiller? Still? What’s their celebrity portmanteau?) film, The Watch. Incidentally, The Watch also features the first onscreen collaboration between Stiller and Richard Ayoade, who previously worked together on Submarine (Ayoade directed, Stiller produced).
Stiller and Hill have starred together in Night at the Museum 2, Megamind, and are set to reunite for Zoolander 2.
