Heder to Star in Buddy Holly Adaptation


Jon Heder is set to star in Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede, an adaptation of the Bradley Denton comic sci-fi novel, says Variety.

In the film, Heder will play Oliver Vale, an average geek whose uneventful life changes when Buddy Holly turns up on every TV channel and declares that Vale is the only one who understands why this is happening — which causes Vale to be pursued by a mob of disguised aliens.

Robert Rugan wrote the script and will direct.
