The viral — at least, it appears to be going for viral — campaign for Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess’ next film, Gentlemen Broncos continues. The film tells the story of a teenager, played by The Forbidden Kingdom’s Michael Angarano who attends a fantasy writers’ convention where he discovers that his idea has been stolen by an established novelist.

Gentlemen Broncos is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2009. It will also star American Pie’s Jennifer Coolidge and Choke star Sam Rockwell. For more on Ronald Chevalier, check out RonaldChevalier.com.
