Helming the film is Nicholas Stoller, best known for writing and directing irreverent comedies like Get Him to the Greek and The Five-Year Engagement. Andrew J. Cohen (Talladega Nights) and Brendan O'Brien (Funny People) wrote the screenplay.

Although college comedies have been popular for years, Stoller admits that it's a tricky genre. He told HitFix: "For every Animal House, there seem to be about a dozen Sorority Boys." He went on to say that this film would be "right in the middle."

Neighbors arrives in theaters nationwide May 9. Check out the trailer at the bottom this post.
