Exclusive: Jared Hess' Gentlemen Broncos Poster Revealed!

Fox Searchlight has let us exclusively debut the official poster for Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess' next film Gentlemen Broncos today! Yep, that's "Flight of the Conchords" star Jemaine Clement above and you'll also see Michael Angarano below, as he's actually the lead in this. The trailer debuts tomorrow but I've had the chance to see it and I guarantee if you loved Napoleon Dynamite, you'll love this as well. It looks hilarious and completely original thanks to the crazy, brilliant mind of Jared Hess. All those wacky characters seen along the side of the poster will be explained, but until then, I'll let them remain a mystery.
Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story gets ripped off by the legendary novelist Ronald Chevalier and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.
Gentlemen Broncos is directed by filmmaker Jared Hess, of both Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jared and his wife Jerusha Hess. Fox Searchlight is bringing Gentlemen Broncos to theaters starting on October 30th after its premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin.
