From nude dudes to drugged out debauchery and fur-flaked cutlery, Stoller favors jokes that teeter on the brink of bad taste. So frankly we’re a little surprised to hear the title of his next movie has changed from the intriguing Townies to the far less evocative Neighbors.
The plot concerns an ordinary family man (Rogen) and his wife (Byrne) whose life is becoming a constant Hell thanks to a rowdy fraternity house nearby. The husband will eventually go head-to-head with the frat leader, played by Efron. Indiewire states Roberts will join Mintz-Plasse and Franco as a fellow frat boy.
Seth Rogen helped Christopher Mintz-Plasse get his big break when the young actor was cast as McLovin in Superbad, and now, six years later the two are set to reunite - and Dave Franco is coming along for the ride as well.

While Nicholas Stoller has long ties with Judd Apatow and his gang - he was a writer on the Apatow television series Undeclared - for the most part Stoller has stuck to working with Jason Segel. The two have written together on multiple occasions, for movies like The Muppets, and have worked together multiple times as director and actor, namely for Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement.
