Should Judd Apatow make Bill Hader's slasher movie?

Posted on


Billhaderjuddapatow_lSaturday Night Live‘s Bill Hader is trying to convince Judd Apatow to team up with him for a horror comedy. Hader tells CHUD.com that he and SNL scribe Simon Rich have presented their idea to Apatow (who produced Superbad, in which Hader costarred), but says he isn’t sure if it’ll get made. Though cryptic about the actual plot of the film, Hader said that he’s a fan of true crime shows, and that, “That’s basically what the movie is about. What if that guy decided tocome to your house? What would you and your dips— friends do aboutit?” While the concept sounds Scream meets Shaun of the Dead to me, Hader likened it to “Straw Dogs meets Halloween meets Home Alone meets Monster Squad.”

What do you think? Should Apatow make the movie? Let him know in our poll below. I vote yes because, while I’m not a fan of true crime shows, I have experienced that moment after a CSI marathon when you become hyperaware of your surroundings and everything (and everyone) that could kill you. There are laughs to be had there.
