Bill Hader is developing a slasher film with Judd Apatow that would blend the comedy producer’s usual slacker guys ethos with pure horror.
Hader has given an update on the movie – which he first talked about at Sundance - to CHUD’s Devin Faraci, and reports that the movie not only has a working title (House Of Joel), but a development deal with Universal.
Co-written by Hader and Saturday Night Live scribe Simon Rich, the pic would see a house of pot loving, wisecracking guys invaded by a nasty, knife-wielding stalker.
“I love true crime shows,” Hader previously said about the movie. “The idea of that thing coming to your house, and what do you do? I would shit my pants. That's basically what the movie is about. What if that guy decided to come to your house? What would you and your dipshit friends do about it?”
With Hader as Joel, the film is now making its way through the halls of development. But with Apatow’s backing, we’re hopeful it’ll see a green light flashing soon.
A light that will then be covered with squirts of vein-claret…
Would you watch an Apatow slasher pic? Could this be better than Scream IV?
