Jack Black says he is 'ready' for a 'School of Rock' sequel

School of Rock follows the story of Finn, a musician who was kicked out of his band

162-Jack-Black Black humour: Jack Black in his boxers—it is not exactly a sight for sore eyes. But at least it was for a good cause. The actor-comedian stripped during a fundraiser in Los Angeles to raise money for SAG-AFTRA members impacted by the actors’ strike in Hollywood. Not only that, he also boogied to Taylor Swift’s ‘Anti-hero’, making up the lyrics along the way. The crowd, of course, loved it (although Swift might have a different opinion).

More than two decades after this beloved musical comedy released, the lead star Jack Black has said that he's ready to reprise the role of the energetic musician Dewey Finn. Actor-comedian Black said, “I wish there’d be a School Of Rock 2 Electric Boogaloo,” giving a nod to the title of the 1984 sequel to Breakin', Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

School of Rock follows the story of Finn, a musician who was kicked out of his rock band and goes on to become a substitute music teacher in an uptight private elementary school. The film starred Mike White, Joan Cusack, Adam Pascal, Lucas Papaelias, Chris Stack, Sarah Silverman and Miranda Cosgrove. 

Black also said that he would like White, the writer of the 2003 film to write the script for the sequel. “And we’d have to have Mike White back in the saddle, but he’s real busy right now with [The] White Lotus, the best show on TV,” Black said. Black is currently promoting Kung Fu Panda 4.

A stage adaptation of School of Rock opened on Broadway in 2015 but closed in 2019. Nickelodeon created a television series based on the movie, which ran for three seasons.
