Los Angeles: After starring together in `The Watch`, actors Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill will reunite for a new comedy film to be directed by Shawn Levy.

The new project titled `Aloha` is an `island-set comedy` and both Stiller and Hill will also serve as producers for it, The Hollywood Reporter said.

`The Muppets` scribe Nicholas Stoller is in talks to write the script, which is based on Hill`s idea that he fleshed out on the set of `The Watch`.

Last seen in `21 Jump Street`, Oscar-nominated Hill has nabbed roles in a number of high-end films, including Quentin Tarantino`s `Django Unchained`, Martin Scorsese`s `The Wolf of Wall Street`, and Seth Rogen`s `The End of the World`.

Stiller, meanwhile, will next be seen in `The Secret Life of Walter Mitty` remake.

Hill and Stiller`s `The Watch` will hit theatres in the US on July 27.
