DreamWorks is still working on a way to resolve its bad break on Blades of Glory, after Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) fractured his ankle while working on his skating skills. Heder stars with Will Ferrell in the comedy.
Variety says DreamWorks has been scrambling, trying to coax Warner Bros. into moving up Heder's next film, Mama's Boy, so that it can push back the ice skating film. The hope is that Heder - who's now in a soft cast - can convalesce while making that comedy and return to the ice later this year when healed. That requires co-star Diane Keaton, who plays his angelic mother, to alter her plans to make the slot switch possible.
