Heder on Buddy Holly

Ganymede book cover

Although his breakout role of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE did have a Buddy Holly thing going, Jon Heder won't be playing the singing legend but will be hopping on board Caspian Pictures' ALIVE AND WELL, based on Bradley Denton's humorous sci-fi novel "Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede". The full title sounds funnier...

Written and directed by Robert Rugan from a treatment by Denton himself, the story follows an electronics salesman's quest to save the Earth from an Alien plot after Buddy Holly sent him a personal message through every TV sets on the planet. Sounds a bit like "Dude Where's My Hitchhiker's Guide".

No release date has been advanced yet, with filming set to happen during Heder's hiatus form his upcoming yet-untitled sitcom for Comedy Central. Anybody read the book?
