Judd Apatow horror?

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."
