Jack Black Returns to Paramount's ‘School of Rock 2’

Paramount Pictures has set Jack Black to reprise his role as rock star wannabe/substitute teacher Dewey Finn for a School of Rock sequel. Richard Linklater will direct again, and Scott Rudin is returning as producer.

According to Variety, original School of Rock writer Mike White is returning to write the new screenplay, titled School of Rock 2, which picks up with Finn leading a group of summer school students on a cross-country field trip that delves into the history of rock 'n' roll and explores the roots of blues, rap, country and other genres.

No production date has been set.

The School of Rock 2: America Rocks is in development .

    although i 'vote no for the sequel', it is not because i didn't think the first was 'laugh out loud funny' like "jremyd" but rather, because i enjoyed the first so much and don't want my memory of it smeared by a sh*te sequel

    oh well, i'll be sure to see it anyway

            Now that we discussed everything but about this movie... Let's turn back to it.. While the first one was funny, but like radimus said, it wasn't exactly laugh out loud. So I Vote No for The seaquel. Like it matters anyway. Hollywood still does what it wants to and very rarely listens to the FanBoy... Hey its their money... But I say NO! Anyone else?

                  jremyd i totally agree with u, i love Seth Rogen and his whole crew they just funny all of them, and Carells pretty funny but my opinion this still something missin with him, and about funny, Ben stiller is pretty funny i like most of his movies

                    well cell, he does read the scripts. so if it's anybodies fault that he's in some sh*t movies, it's his own.

                    but i do agree bout this, don't really think we need a sequel. the first one wasn't exsactly LAUGH OUT LOUD.

                      "School of Rock 2"...Hmmm Ok...I don't think we need a sequel...but I guess it all comes down to money!

                      Jim Carrey & Eddie Murphy use to be funny! Seth Rogan is funny. Steve Carell is funny (I never have watched his TV show, only films)..but I think Steve Carell just gets handed lousy scripts.

                        Well cnote. I think you just proved a point... if they are not funny then who is? Seems to be no funny guys out there anymore. Guess no one wants to have the Jim Carrey curse.

                          i think if JB has something to say with the jokes and what not and its NOT rated PG, it should be worth a watch atleast...
