Three Men Want Jon Heder In Front

Universal Pictures has found “Three Men Seeking Monsters,” a cryptozoological travelogue by Nick Redfern which they plan to turn into a comedy vehicle for Jon Heder (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “Blades of Glory”).

Published in 2004 by Paraview, “Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monsters, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs, and Ape-Men” tells how the author, a baldheaded punker, and his two friends set off on a six-week, alcohol-infused road trip investigating monster myths around Great Britain.

His two friends are a goth herpetologist who dresses like a pirate and a 6-foot-6-inch, 400-pound behemoth who wears a Sherlock Holmes cap.
