Fox Animates Napoleon Dynamite
Fox is turning Napolean Dynamite into a cartoon.
The network has ordered six episodes of an animated version of the 2004 indie comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The original cast, including Jon Heder, will return to voice the awkward high schoolers. Simpsons vet Mike Scully will executive-produce.
Dynamite follows a long line of films that have been turned into animated series, including The Mask, Police Academy, Spaceballs and Back to the Future.
Fox also ordered seven episodes of Allen Gregory, an elementary school animated comedy from Jonah Hill.
