High-above the mucky muck, castle made of clouds, there sits Wonderboy, sitting oh so proudly. Jack Black, hot on the heels of announcing his magnum opus with comedy-rock-turned-real-rock-turned-movie-star band Tenacious D, has just unveiled another project worthy of the man who long pined to be an American badass. Perhaps he'll finally achieve that dream with the now-confirmed sequel to 2004's School of Rock, titled School of Rock 2: America Rocks.
The movie will see Black reprising his role as Dewey Finn, leading a group of schoolchildren on a cross-country summer trip to study the storied history of blues, country and rap.
A burning question remains, though: who will the cameos be in this epic search for the heart and soul of American music? Our dream team? Lou Reed, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen...and hey, why not toss Nas in there for good measure?
