Apatow Slasher Gets Name

It's The House of Joel for Bill Hader in Judd Apatow's slasherA few weeks back news broke out of Sundance that comedy genius Judd Apatow was working on a slasher film with Bill Hader as the star. Tonight a few more details have emerged including a title for said project -- House of Joel.

According to CHUD: "The current title of the film is House of Joel, and Hader would play Joel himself. In this case Joel isn't the slasher but the person possibly getting slashed (unless there's a crazy twist. And you never know...). 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."

In a perfect world this project would immediately hit the fast track. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Hit the above link for the whole article.
