Jon Heder is set to star as yet another geek, whose life has been interrupted by transmissions from Buddy Holly in the live action translation of Bradley Denton's cracked-out novel, Buddy Holly Is Alive And Well On Ganymede.

Heder plays Oliver Vale, whom the trades describe as:

An average geek whose uneventful life changes when Buddy Holly turns up on every TV channel and declares that Vale is the only one who understands why this is happening — which causes Vale to be pursued by a mob of disguised aliens.


The film will be directed by Robert Rugan, who's responsible for Alice's Misadventures in Wonderland. What's the verdict?
