Devin Faraci of CHUD caught up with Bill Hader at Sundance, where Hader revealed that he and Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich have scripted a horror film for director Judd Apatow, though its status is sketchy. "I don't know if it's even going to get made. Judd met with us and said 'I want to do a horror movie with you. I want to see you in a slasher movie.'"
Hader was tight-lipped on the finer story points, but revealed that it would be a horror comedy that would manage the delicate balance between Michael Myers and Macaulay Culkin. "It's partially Straw Dogs meets Halloween meets Home Alone meets Monster Squad ... 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 f***ed up reality shows, I love true crime shows. 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?" Now that he's gone and teased us, I want Apatow to commit to Hader, and show us what his brand of horror would be like, don't you?
