Jon Heder is attached to star in “Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede,” an adaptation of the Bradley Denton comedic science-fiction novel.
Robert Rugan both wrote the script and will be directing the project. Molly Mayeux is producing through her Dahlia Street Films banner alongside partner Michael Hennessy. Caspian Pictures’ Brian Bullock is onboard as an executive producer.
Heder will play Oliver Vale, a geek whose life changes when the classic rocker Buddy Holly turns up on every TV channel on the planet and declares that Vale is the only one who understands why this is happening, which triggers a planet-wide manhunt for Vale by various hidden and disguised aliens on the Earth, to comedic effect.
