Los Angeles: The comedy film `Napoleon Dynamite` saw four of its principal castmembers -- Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, Tina Majorino and Haylie Duff -- reuniting 10 years after the film`s release.

The film`s 10th anniversary is being celebrated next month with a special screening on August 7 at Hollywood Forever Cemetery to kick off the 2014 Sundance Next Fest film festival, reportedly.

"Celebrating 10 sweet years of napoleondynamite," tweeted a woman, who posed with the four actors.
"There`ll be a cast reunion, and we`ll be able to elaborate on our history with the film and how a tiny little film from Preston, Idaho, has reached so many people," festival director of programming Trevor Groth had said last month when the line-up was announced.

The 2004 film, the directorial debut of Jared Hess, was a commercial success. The quirky, off-beat movie set in the small Idaho town of Preston sees Napoleon Dynamite, a socially awkward high school student with a decidedly eccentric family who is determined to help his friend Pedro run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer Wheatley.
