"Napoleon Dynamite" star Jon Heder is to play the lead role in a new comedy called 'Mama's Boy'
"Napoleon Dynamite" star Jon Heder is about to play the lead role in a new comedy titled "Mama's Boy." The comedy is about an arrogant pseudo-intellectual whose ideal home life is thrown into peril when his mother falls in love with a self-help guru.
Tim Hamilton will make his directorial debut in this film, while Hank Nelken wrote the script. Filming on "Mama's Boy" is due to begin in February 2006 as Warner Independent Pictures are looking forward to have the film in cinemas in the US by February 2006, with a UK date follows soon after.
Heder can next be seen opposite Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo in "Just Like Heaven," opening September 16th, and in "The Benchwarmers." He's also starring in the remake of "School for Scoundrels" with Billy Bob Thornton.
