Jon Heder Joins “Buddy Holly” Sci-Fi Comedy

Jon Heder (“Blades of Glory,” “Napoleon Dynamite”) is set to star in the sci-fi comedy “Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede” for Dahlia Street Films says Variety.

An adaptation of the Bradley Denton novel, 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. Molly Mayeux and Michael Hennessy will produce.
