Apatow Slasher Flick Gains Title and Star!

Back at Sundance CHUD broke the news that funny man Bill Hader was embarking into uncharted waters… horror. Today, they learned that Hader will topline the film currently titled House of Joel. Assuming the movie happens, Hader will play Joel, a potential slasher victim. “The screenplay, a draft of which Hader just handed over to the good people at Apatow, is being co-written with Simon Rich, a writer at Saturday Night Live,” reports CHUD. Hopefully this sucker turns out better than Adam Sandler’s attempt at horror in The Shortcut. Click over for more.
