Fox Developing Animated Napoleon Dynamite


FishBowlLA is reporting that Fox is developing an animated series based on the 2004 film Napoleon Dynamite:

Most of the original cast from the 2004 cult favorite are on board to reprise their roles from the film, according to people familiar with the project. Actors lending their voices include Jon Heder as the title character Napoleon Dynamite, Efran Ramirez as Pedro, Aaron Ruell as Kip Dynamite and Jon Gries as Uncle Rico. Likewise Jared and Jerusha Hess, who created the characters and wrote and directed the film, are closely involved with the potential animated series.

We’ll have to wait and see when this project may hit the network.
