Napoleon Dynamite Could Strike Twice With Some Help From Flight of the Conchords
It’s a classic tale. When filmmaker JARED HESS debuted NAPOLEON DYNAMITE he shot from unknown to everyone’s favorite indie director in less time than it takes to sketch a liger.
But then came NACHO LIBRE, a film that left the vast majority of audiences over the age of seven nonplussed.
For his next feature, Hess is playing it low key as far as marketing goes; FOX SEARCHLIGHT has created a weird viral site for his upcoming comedy, GENTLEMEN BRONCOS, but they’re not promoting it. Consider this the anti-Libre.
Also promising is the fact the cast includes FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS‘ JERMAINE CLEMENT as a legendary fantasy novelist, JENNIFER COOLIDGE, and SAM ROCKWELL, whose name gives the project some indie street cred — the movies he’s in tend to be unique (CHOKE) if not really good (SNOW ANGELS).
