Hader on House of Joel


Devin Faraci has gleaned some new information on the planned Apatow-stable horror movie written by SNL alum Bill Hader, called House of Joel.

He quotes Hader explaining the project during Sundance:

“It is definitely about guys nowadays, that idea that you watch fucked up shit on TV, how violence in our culture – this sounds really hoity toity – you watch fucked up reality shows, I love true crime shows. The idea of that thing coming to your house, and what do you do? I would shit my pants. That’s basically what the movie is about. What if that guy decided to come to your house? What would you and your dipshit friends do about it?”

It sounds like an interesting project but, right now, just a curiosity more than anything else. Hader is certainly talented by I remain unconvinced he can really hold the attention of an audience as a film actor.
