Jack Black Is Game For A School Of Rock Sequel, But With One Condition – SlashFilm


But wait! Before anyone starts printing any “‘School of Rock 2’ Confirmed!” headlines and shouting them from the street corners (people still do that, right?), Jack Black was quick to name his one big requirement.

Richard Linklater and Black tend to get the lion’s share of credit for the film, but may we never forget the contributions of Ned Schneebly himself. Mike White not only starred in the film as the dweeby teacher roommate who has his identity stolen by Black’s washed-up rocker Dewey Finn, but he also wrote the screenplay. He’s since gone on to gather credits on productions such as the Black-starring “Nacho Libre,” the 2017 indie “Beatriz at Dinner,” and “Pitch Perfect 3,” but he’s perhaps most well-known as the creator of the acclaimed HBO series “The White Lotus.” Understandably, Black emphasized the importance of having White involved in any potential “School of Rock” sequel. He went on to say:

“You know Mike White wrote the first one and he’s a genius. And we’d have to have Mike White back in the saddle, but he’s real busy right now with ‘White Lotus,’ the best show on TV.”

There’s been no official word about another “School of Rock” film, although it’s theoretically possible that the ever-passionate Black could recruit the whole gang for one last encore performance. (If you’re wondering what they’re all up to these days, wonder no more.) Will it ever happen? Who knows! But even if not, at least we can look forward to plenty of delightful Jack Black shenanigans for as long as he’s lending his star power to movies these days. 

“School of Rock” is currently streaming on Netflix.
