Weird Al Yankovic is making a movie. The project, produced in conjunction with Roku, will be a biopic about the life and times of Weird Al. Daniel Radcliffe will play the role of the legendary comedic musician. Fans are thrilled by the announcement.

Weird Al simply tweeted one short statement. Fans immediately began to buzz. “UHF 2” even trended before the nature of the project became widely known. Twitter is super excited about the new Weird Al Yankovic movie!

“I’d do anything to be in this movie. I’d also do nothing, which seems easier. I fought a sandwich in a pro wrestling match, and won. I have a 36 minute video about how “Home Alone” is better if Kevin MacCallister is played by an actual cat. This and more, for a role in “VHF”.”

“lmk if you need lebanon bologna in your film”

“UHF 2 IS FINALLY HAPPENING”

“Or, is Daniel Radcliffe making a movie?”

Weird Al fans are going crazy over the announcement of his new movie. It doesn’t look like a UHF sequel is in the works. Most will still find Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al perfectly acceptable.
