Remember 'Adventures in Babysitting,' a quirky 1987 Chris Columbus comedy about a babysitter, played by Elisabeth Shue, who gets into all kinds of hair-raising adventures when she agrees to sit for three neighbor kids?

Remember 'Adventures in Babysitting,' a quirky 1987 Chris Columbus comedy about a babysitter, played by Elisabeth Shue, who gets into all kinds of hair-raising adventures when she agrees to sit for three neighbor kids? According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is working on a male version of the film with 'Superbad's' Jonah Hill in the babysitter role and David Gordon Green ('Pineapple Express') in negotiations to direct.

'The Sitter' follows a college student who enters babysitting hell when he agrees to babysit three eccentric kids next door: two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl. The project has been floating around Fox for a while, with, at one point, both Zac Efron and Zach Galifianakis interested in it.

Hill has become somewhat of a hot property, with 'Get Him to the Greek' opening June 4 and the Sundance comedy 'Cyrus,' directed by the Duplass brothers, hitting theaters July 9. Green recently finished the Universal comedy 'Your Highness,' which stars Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman.

Fox is aiming for a fall start date.
