House of Joel


It’s been a while since Bill Hader was gabbing about the slasher film that he is collaborating with Judd Apatow on. Way back in the when he said the movie was called House of Joel, and he described it by saying, “It’s partially Straw Dogs meets Halloween meets Home Alone meets The Monster Squad.” If I didn’t know better, I would say he looked into my mind and stole that quote directly from my deepest fantasies. Recently Hader spilled some more details about the project and where they’re at with its development when talking to The Playlist. Firstly, Hader says that there has probably been a name change, “Well, I’m not sure it’s called House of Joel anymore. I don’t know what’s happening with it exactly. Judd, me, and Jason Woliner are gonna meet in L.A. soon to figure out what the next steps are. It’s a funny, funny script and it’s Judd’s take on a slasher movie. It’s been a long gestating project, but I think it’s worth it because it just keeps getting better.” Better sounds good, but Apatow hasn’t done anything yet other than comedies with a little added heart. What would an Apatow-made horror film look like?
