Universal acquires ‘Three Men’

Film being developed as a vehicle for Heder

Universal Pictures has acquired the Nick Redfern novel “Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monster, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs, and Ape-Men.”

The hope is to develop a film that could be a vehicle for Jon Heder, the “Napoleon Dynamite” star who’s about to open opposite Will Ferrell in “Blades of Glory.”

Jon, Doug and Dan Heder’s U-based Greasy Entertainment banner will produce with Ken Atchity of Atchity Entertainment Intl.

In the book, three guys who’ve separately chased monsters and UFOs unite for one last hurrah, taking one last caravan to every place in the British countryside where monsters have allegedly been spotted.

Book, a cult favorite in Britain, was published by Simon & Schuster.

Chi-li Wong will be exec producer, and Mike Kuciak will be a co-producer.
