Rogen set to 'Observe' for Warners


Seth Rogen is readying his walkie-talkie for "Observe and Report," a comedy Jody Hill is directing for Warner Bros. Donald De Line is producing.

Written by Hill, "Report" centers on Ronnie Barnhardt (Rogen), a deluded, self-important head of mall security who squares off in a turf war against the local cops.

Warners' Matt Reilly is overseeing. De Line Pictures' Andrew Haas is executive producing along with Marty Ewing. Legendary Pictures is co-producing the film with Warners.

Hill, repped by CAA, is the writer-director of "The Foot Fist Way," a Paramount Vantage comedy set to bow in the spring.

Rogen, repped by UTA and Principal Entertainment, next stars in "Pineapple Express," which he co-wrote. He is shooting Kevin Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."
