School of Rock 2 – Jack Black Can’t Stop/Won’t Stop Rocking

source: variety.com

After years of speculation, Paramount Pictures has greenlit a sequel to the 2003 hit School of Rock, with star Jack Black, writer Mike White and director Richard Linklater all signed on.

School of Rock 2: America Rocks will follow music “teacher” and unstoppable rocker Dewey Finn as he takes a busload of summer-school students on a cross country field trip. His plan is to educate them on the history of rock’n’roll, while exploring the roots of other genres such as country, blues and rap.

I gotta say, I wouldn’t mind seeing another School of Rock. The original was really great, and it was the best showcase of Black’s talent that we’ve yet seen. Director Richard Linklater is involved once again, which is very good news. This guy has made some great movies, so if he has faith, then so do I.

While the film doesn’t have a release date yet, it will probably start filming at the end of the year. In the meantime, here’s the trailer for The Rocker starring Rainn Wilson (you might recognise him as Dwight Schrute from the American Office.) The Rocker comes out next month, and looks like School of Rock with slightly older kids.


Keep on Rockin’!

  1. I just ordered a sweet Dwight Schrute for President shirt from http://www.PantherTees.com. They have tons of stuff from The Office. They said not to tell anyone, but here is a 10% discount code, pts10 (it is case sensitive, so copy and paste it). Enjoy!
