Judd Apatow horror?

01.21.2009

Judd Apatow is a very successful producer. He knows what he likes, he knows what would make a good movie and he movies quickly to get it developed. The problem is that because Judd Apatow IS such a successful producer, sometimes word leaks out on his films before they're ready to go public and we get our hopes up for nothing (see the Sacha Baron Cohen/Will Ferrell Sherlock Holmes film). Now that may be the case with this new project but it's so out of left field it's gotta be discussed. A Judd Apatow slasher film??

CHUD caught up with ADVENTURELAND star Bill Hader at Sundance and eventually they got talking about what he was working on. He said he just had a meeting with Apatow about working together on a slasher film. Hader is currently writing the project with fellow SNLer Simon Rich. So what would a Bill Hader/Judd Apatow movie be like? Says Hader, "It's partially STRAW DOGS meets HALLOWEEN meets HOME ALONE meets MONSTER SQUAD." Don't worry though, there are still definite comedic elements to it. As he explains, it's a slasher comedy in that what if a slasher showed up to your house. "What would you and your dipshit friends do about it?"

Horror comedy is extremely tough to pull off but certainly not possible and if anyone can do it, Judd Apatow and crew certainly can. Read more about what Hader has to say about the film over at CHUD...

Extra Tidbit: Hader is a Creative Consultant on "South Park."

Certainly not possible?

Proof reading isn't elitist, give it a try.

And if this ends up happening it should be glorious.

NICE!

The man had me at "The Monster Squad" in fact, the very fact that he mentioned it makes him a notch higher in my cool book
He needs a leading role BAD!

Seems like a mix between Shaun of the Dead and Scary movie to me. Could be good, and agree Hader is underrated.

Agreed

I agree with Neon, Hader is very underrated. He is so funny and really steals scenes in the movies hes in.

I like the idea of Apatow coming out with a horror slasher film. I think we can all agree that Seth Rogen should NOT play the slasher though.

He had me at "Straw Dogs" and "Home Alone". I'm glad Hader's getting more success to the point where he could potentially follow Rogen and Segel into the creative department (even though he's not one of Apatow's original proteges). The man is all over the place and he's one of the better SNLers working today. I really hope this one gets made.

Not Possible?

Your article says that horror comedies are "tough to pull off but certainly not possible." Obviously, that is a misprint. I only mention it because it made me chuckle to myself. It is not possible, and yet Judd Apatow and crew can do it? He must be really good!
