Exclusive: Jared and Jerusha Hess on Gentlemen Broncos
October 29, 2009
ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to Jared and Jerusha Hess, the husband-and-wife filmmakers behind Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre, about their new comedy, Gentlemen Broncos. Directed by Jared and co-written by both, the October 30 release stars Michael Angarano, Jennifer Coolidge, Jemaine Clement, Mike White and Sam Rockwell.
In the film, Benjamin (Angarano), home-schooled by his eccentric mother (Coolidge), is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier (Clement) and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.
