Remember that impressive fan-made Indiana Jones move where they recreated each scene shot for shot? Well now it looks like there’s going to be a movie about the fan-movie about the movie. Producer of Napoleon Dynamite is said to be taking up an option on producing a movie on the two 11 year olds who brought us the movie in 1982.
Their venture was charted in a book called Raiders!, by Alan Eisenstock, and that book has now been optioned for the big screen by Jeremy Coon, the producer of Napoleon Dynamite. Coon intends to make two films, the first being a documentary, the second being a feature retelling of the Raiders Of The Lost Ark remake.
Both Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala, now in their 40s, are on board as co-producers.
