During an interview at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, Bill Hader has pointed out one interesting tidbit. To CHUD, the "Saturday Night Live" actor who is in Sundance for Greg Mottola's "Adventureland" reveals that he and SNL writer Simon Rich have written a slasher movie for Judd Apatow.

On making the script for the man behind "Knocked Up" and "Superbad", Hader recalled, "Judd met with us and said 'I want to do a horror movie with you. I want to see you in a slasher movie.'" The 30-year-old further described the project's concept, explaining "It's partially Straw Dogs meets Halloween meets Home Alone meets Monster Squad."

While avoiding giving too much, he still noted, "It is definitely about guys nowadays, that idea that you watch f***ed up s*** on TV, how violence in our culture - this sounds really hoity toity - you watch f***ed up reality shows, I love true crime shows."

He further added, "The idea of that thing coming to your house, and what do you do? I would s*** 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 dips*** friends do about it?"

Bill Hader is known for his various acts in sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live". He first starred in a big screen movie when landing a role in "You, Me and Dupree". His film credits include "Knocked Up", "Superbad", "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Tropic Thunder". He will next be seen in "Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian".

A producer, director, and screenwriter, Judd Apatow's notable works include "The 40-Year-Old Virgin", "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby", "Knocked Up", "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express".
