Napoleon Dynamite TV series on the cards?

Fox reportedly working on adapting cult classic for animated show

Cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite is set for a small-screen reincarnation, with Fox reportedly planning an animated show based around the movie.

The 2004 film, starring Jon Heder, is about an awkward teenager who tries to help his friend win the class presidency.

The Hollywood Reporter suggests that original cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite himself) and Efren Ramirez (Pedro) have both agreed to be involved, along with creators Jared and Jerusha Hess.

No other details are yet known.

The latest effort from the makers, Gentlemen Broncos, was released this year to a critical mauling.
