Jack Black Wants a “School of Rock” Sequel


Key Takeaways:

– Jack Black has expressed his interest in making another School of Rock movie.
– Black insists Mike White, the original film's writer and creator of HBO's The White Lotus, should return for a sequel.
– School of Rock, which starred Black, had a TV show adaptation on Nickelodeon and a stage adaptation.

Renowned and Jack Black recently hinted at his keen interest in revisiting the ebullient world of the music-themed comedy School of Rock film for a sequel. According to The Hollywood (THR), Black recently discussed the possibility of a School of Rock 2 during a conversation with the publication JOE.

Bring the ‘Rock' Back

The original School of Rock was a charming comedy with a warm heart. Playing lead character Dewey Finn, a desperate rocker who impersonates his roommate as a substitute teacher, Jack Black showcased his comedic flair and musical prowess in a delightful blend. His uncanny ability to transition his class from uptight private school to rock band gave the film its memorable appeal.

“I wish there'd be a School of Rock 2 Electric Boogaloo,” he said during his chat with JOE. The bucket-list sequel, he insists, must include Mike White, writer of the original film and the creative force behind HBO's current hit The White Lotus. “You know Mike White wrote one and he's a genius. And we'd have to have Mike White back in the saddle,” added Black.

A Multifaceted Partnership

It isn't the first time Mike White and Jack Black collaborated. School of Rock also saw White on screen portraying Ned Schneebly, the roommate of Black's character, Dewey Finn. The pair also reunited in Nacho Libre, a Mexican comedy. With Black's comments, it's clear the successful partnership of White's storytelling and Black's enchanting on-screen antics may be gearing up for a nostalgic comeback.

A Lasting Legacy

Despite lacking a film sequel, the School of Rock story new in a TV show adaptation on Nickelodeon, which ran for three seasons from 2016 to 2018. This testament to the film's enduring appeal also took to the stage with a Broadway musical adaptation in 2015, which had a successful run until 2019.

In summary, while the talk of a sequel is still in its infancy, the eagerness of one of the original film's stars, combined with the enduring popularity of the original story, makes the prospect of a School of Rock sequel an exciting possibility. With regard to timing, can only wait for an official announcement that could see their favorite characters back on the big screen.
