Napoleon Dynamite cost only $400,000 to make and grossed over $46 million worldwide. When a movie sports that kind of positive cost to profit ratio, you’ve got to assume there will be a sequel.
Evidently the folks behind the movie agree. Efren Ramirez, who played Pedro in Napoleon appeared on the Dallas radio show Pugs & Kelly this afternoon and confirmed that there have been talks about making a Napoleon Dynamite 2. He says most of the rumors circulating about other Napoleon projects, like a television show or a series of comic books are nothing but rumors, but he confirms that they are at least talking about making another movie.
However, though they may be talking about making another, it doesn’t seem like Efren is counting on it. He was in town promoting a DJ gig at a local club. Apparently Pedro doesn’t get a cut of all those horrible T-Shirt sales. If you’ve got a few extra bucks, consider donating to Pedro. He needs your cash, not your votes.
