Steve recently spoke with actor and writer Bill Hader about his upcoming projects.  One movie he might try to shoot while he’s on hiatus from Saturday Night Live is his wife’s Maggie Carey’s script, The Hand Job.  The script landed on the 2009 Black List (a list of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood) and we reported back in October that Aubrey Plaza was attached to play the lead role of a 17-year-old who wants to learn about various sexual activities before she goes to college.  Hader says that he, Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, and Johnny Simmons are attached to co-star, and if that cast doesn’t make you excited, then you must not recognize these actors by name.  You should work on that.

Hit the jump for what Hader told Steve about the project as well as a more dramatic film he may do called The Skeleton Twins with Anna Faris and Mark Duplass.  Click here for what Hader had to say about his SNL character “Stefon”, and be sure to check back later today for more of Steve’s interview with Hader.

UPDATESteve here.  Just spoke to Bill Hader again and he told me that Chris Mintz-Plasse is now attached to Hand Job as well!  Hope this thing gets made this summer.

Here’s what Hader told Steve about The Hand Job and The Skeleton Twins:

Have you figured out what you want to do during your hiatus from SNL?

BILL HADER:  There is this movie called The Skeleton Twins that is trying to find funding that me, Anna Farris, and Mark Duplass are attached to.  This guy, Craig Johnson, is going to direct it.  Mark Heyman, who wrote Black Swan, wrote it.  It’s more of a drama with me and Anna Farris playing twins.  It’s really interesting.  Then my wife, Maggie Carey, wrote a movie that was on the Black List called The Hand Job for Aubrey Plaza that she plans to write and direct.  That movie is kind of in the same place as Skeleton Twins.  They are kind of trying to get their funding together.  It’s a really cool movie.  The cast for that is great.  It’s got Aubrey Plaza, me, Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, and Johnny Simmons is attached to it.  It’s a really cool movie that is insanely funny.  We did a reading of it at the Austin Film Festival and it just blew the roof off of the place.  People went nuts for it.  I really hope that happens.

    But can we take Aubrey Plaza out of the equation, though?

  • Christopher levi

    I was at a reading of this (with Hader,Mrs. Hader and Plaza in attendance).

    I don’t know. I was kind of iffy on it. It’s american pie with a female protagonist and it walks that fine line between “giving it away” and empowerment. Walked away from it not sure how i felt.

    Chris, you are an idiot. Donald Glover is the best part of community and I am glad he is involved with this. You make me ashamed we share the same name.

    • Konscious

      Yo man, I totally agree. Donald Glover is the best part of community. He’s really talented. His stand up is hilarious and he’s more than a decent rapper. Check em out. He raps under the name Childish Gambino

    What are you guys talking about? Aubrey Plaza and Donald Glover are both amazing in Parks and Community! I hope the Hand Job gets made. The cast alone is worth checking it out…

  • kris

    an idiot for not liking a particular comedian??? i dont find him funny i just find him annoying, in regards to Aubrey shes awesome !!!!

    but i still dont like Donald and i wont watch anything with him, so dont be “that guy” and save your remarks on my opinion to yourself.
