Richard Ayoade is apparently joining big screen suburban comedy Neighbourhood Watch.
The IT Crowd star will be appearing alongside Hollywood's comic actors Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill, reported Variety.
Details about his role have not been disclosed yet.
Directed by Akiva Schaffer, Rosemarie DeWitt and Nicholas Braun also star in the film about a group of male neighbours who decide to start up the watchdog group as a cover to escape their wives, only for their plans to go awry when they discover a conspiracy that puts the world at risk.
Chris Tucker had also been in talks about playing one of the neighbours.
Richard - who wrote and directed Submarine - is best known for playing geeky computer nerd Maurice Moss in The IT Crowd, alongside Chris O'Dowd as his sidekick Roy.
Neighbourhood Watch is set to start filming this autumn in Georgia.
