A few weeks ago screenwriter Mike White admitted that he’d just finished and turned in a School of Rock sequel script. Now it looks like the movie is official. Variety says that not only is Paramount Pictures developing a School of Rock 2, but they’ve already got Jack Black back on board in the movie’s lead role.
They’re calling it School of Rock 2: America Rocks. In the sequel, Black’s rock and roll teacher character leads a bunch of summer school students on a cross-country field trip to explore the history of rock.
