Andy Samberg to shoot I Hate You Dad & Hand Job this summer
SNL stars Andy Samberg and Bill Hader are teaming up for a big-screen comedy but before you get your hopes up, it's not the blockbuster LASER CATS! film we've all been waiting for. Instead Samberg and Hader will co-star with Donald Glover and Aubrey Plaza (together co-stars of MYSTERY TEAM) for the indie comedy THE HAND JOB.
The film will be written and directed by Maggie Carey, Hader's wife, and will star Plaza as a type-A high school student who decides to lose her virginity before college (so kinda like SUPERBAD for girls). In addition to that cast, SCOTT PILGRIM stars Johnny Simmons and Mae Whitman have also signed on to star in the film.
Samberg is filming the Adam Sandler comedy I HATE YOU DAD while on hiatus from SNL this summer but will find time to shoot a supporting role in HAND JOB while in NYC. Hader can be seen next in PAUL, which opens next week. As for LASER CATS! who knows if it'll ever see the big screen. James Cameron this is your chance!
