Adventureland actor Bill Hader has revealed that he and Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich have written a slasher movie for Judd Apatow.
“It's partially Straw Dogs meets Halloween meets Home Alone meets Monster Squad,” he told CHUD. “Judd met with us and said ‘I want to do a horror movie with you. I want to see you in a slasher movie.’”
So far so good, right?
Hader held back on plot details, but did reveal the basic concept for the movie. And knocked our anticipation metre down by half:
“It is definitely about guys nowadays, that idea that you watch fucked up shit on TV, how violence in our culture - this sounds really hoity toity - you watch fucked up reality shows, I love true crime shows." Thanks for generalising twentysomething men as idiots, Bill. Much appreciated.
“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?'”
Get some friends we didn't think were 'dipshits', perhaps?
