Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder is starring in a new comedy called Loudermilk, about a Napoleon-esque guy who becomes contaminated with a weird substance that gives him amazing abilities. "That blessing does not come without its consequences and costs," says Heder's brother Doug, who's co-producing. The Heders have brought on Chris Zobel, who directed Great World Of Sound and co-founded HomestarRunner.com, to rewrite and direct the film. Zobel and the Heders are aiming for a "cinema-verite" style, with fantastic stuff happening in an ultra-realistic setting. But mostly, I'm just hoping for Strongbad-esque hijinks. Is that too much to ask? [Hollywood Reporter]
