Comedy star Jay Baruchel is looking to break into the horror biz and get away from the more friendly stuff he’s done like Tropic Thunder, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Knocked Up, and the forthcoming She’s Out of My League. Makes sense to us! Laughter is no substitute for some good old fashioned blood-curdling screams! The first stop on his horror road? A slasher flick tentatively titled Pig.
In an interview with A/V Club Baruchel confesses, “I have a whole bunch of ideas [for horror films]! I got a dozen movies, my dream movies, that I want to make if I get the chance. The first one, the one that we’re kind of working on right now, that hopefully I’ll finally get to direct in the next year or two, is kind of a re-imagining of a slasher film about a crazy white cop who chases four black kids throughout the ghetto on July 4. It’ll be subversive and controversial and polarizing, but that’s what’s best in horror, the movies that do that to people.”
