Trailer Bulletin: Nacho Libre

by | February 10, 2006 | Comments

From Jared Hess (director of "Napoleon Dynamite"), Mike White (writer of "School of Rock"), and the always-insane Jack Black comes "Nacho Libre," a comedy about a Mexican priest who moonlights as a goofy wrestler to save an orphanage from disclosure. Check out the all-new trailer right here.

"Nacho (Jack Black) is a young man who was raised in a Mexican monastery in Oaxaca and now works there as the cook, and takes it upon himself to rescue the holy place from financial ruin by joining a local Lucha Libre tournament and becoming one of the ‘Luchadores’. Naturally, Nacho isn’t acting out of purely altruistic measures, as he wishes to help Sister Encarnacion (Ana de la Reguera), a beautiful Mexican nun who has recently arrived at the monastery, as well as the gaggle of young orphans who live there."

The Paramount production will be unleashed on June 2nd. (Mr. Black’s "Tenacious D" flick is scheduled for release on November 17th, by the way.)
