With his Masterminds currently in release limbo due to the bankruptcy at Relativity Media, the next film we'll see from Napoleon Dynamite (2004) director Jared Hess will be Don Verdean starring Sam Rockwell (Moon), Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), Jermaine Clement (What We Do In The Shadows) and Will Forte (Nebraska).
Don Verdean sees Sam Rockwell's Biblical archaeologist Don and his sidekick Boaz (Clement) hired by McBride to find the skull of Goliath in Israel. But when Don comes up short, his failure fuels a farcical conspiracy. Sometimes "untruths are necessary for the greater good".
Don Verdean premiered at this years Sundance Film Festival, and gets a lmited US theatrical release and an online rollout courtesy of Lionsgate on 11 December. There is no UK release date as yet.
