(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? Jemaine Clement, star and co-creator of Flight of the Conchords, Sam Rockwell (Frost/Nixon), and Michael Angarano (Lords of Dogtown) will star in the comedy Gentlemen Broncos, which Jared Hess (Nacho Libre, Napoleon Dynamite) is directing from a script he wrote with his wife, Jerusha Hess. The story is about a high school outcast (Angarano) who has a story he wrote ripped off by a famous novelist (Clement) while attending writers’ camp. Rockwell will play the main character in the fictional story, which comes to life in the movie. Production is set to start in March. Clement stars with partner Bret McKenzkie in the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, which has been picked up for a second season. Rockwell just starred in the Sundance movie Choke, which was picked up by Fox Searchlight. Angarano next stars in The Forbidden Kingdom with Jet Li and Jackie Chan. (Hollywood Reporter)
