EW caught up with SNL‘s Bill Hader at the premiere of Super 8 last night. Hader talked up his new project: A film written and directed by his wife Maggie Carey, which stars a comic-wonderland ensemble that includes Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, and Hader’s SNL co-star Andy Samberg. “It is about a very type-A, valedictorian type of girl,” explained Hader, “Who decides she needs to be more sexually experienced before she goes to college. I play her boss. She works at pool and there’s a whole big thing with her and me. Let’s just say I may not have the best intentions.” The twist? The movie has been known by a rather in-your-face title: The Hand Job. Hader explained that the film, which is currently slated for a 2013 release, had been retitled The To-Do List. (The Mark Gordon Company, which is producing the film, did not immediately respond to calls to confirm the title swap.) Anyone getting a flashback to when A Couple of Dicks became Cop Out? (Reporting by Carrie Bell)

    The To-Do List is just so bland and generic. But since I love Hader and much of the rest of the cast, I look forward to it.

    Here’s what I think — and you’ll all probably disagree — I think the dirty title might take away/distract from the film.

    It sounds like it might be a really good movie. If it’s called The Hand Job, ALL anyone will talk about is “Hey, did you hear they actually made a movie called Hand Job?!??!”

    Would you rather be known for a great film – or a film with a dirty title?

    Anyway, that’ my .02

    I agree with Bob on this. Nobody is thinking about the affect on children. You realize 6-12 year olds see these ads too?

    This is old news. Maggie Carey had mentioned this way back at the Austin Film Festival in October.

    of course like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality however I’ll surely come back again.
