Super Napoleon?

07.14.2008

Quirky, indie comedies have been huge hits lately as well as superhero movies. So how about a mix of the two? That's exactly what NAPOLEON DYNAMITE star Jon Heder is planning. He's set up the comedy LOUDERMILK at Rogue Pictures, which can probably be described as a mix between NAPOLEON and HANCOCK. Craig Zobel has signed on to rewrite and direct the comedy, which is based on an original pitch by Heder and his brothers Dan and Doug. The film follows a nerdy, oddball type character who also possesses superpowers (though it seems like his superpowers will also be nerdy). Heder pitched the project way back in 2006 but it's been sitting on the shelf for a while and saw some delays when the writers strike locked down Hollywood. Heder recently wrapped a starring role in the romantic comedy WHEN IN ROME (opposite Kristen Bell) but hasn't yet decided on his next project.

Extra Tidbit: Zobel went to college with David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS).
