Sony BMG Music Entertainment has picked up U.S. rights to Tim Skousen's 2006 Slamdance Film Festival audience award winner The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the comedy centers on a young sci-fi fan and his friends who discover some large footprints in the woods and think they have found Bigfoot. Two of the teen's neighbors scheme to make a quick buck from the supposed discovery. The film reteams several of the filmmakers behind Napoleon Dynamite, including its first assistant director Skousen and the producer of both projects, Jeremy Coon. Dynamite writer-director Jared Hess executive produced the comedy.
