FilmJerk reports that actor Jack Black is teaming with School of Rock writer Mike White and Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess to create the the upcoming comedy, Nacho Libre.

According to the site, Black would play a Mexican priest who secretly moonlights as a masked wrestler in order to save an orphanage from closure.

Oaxaca, Mexico is the place where Black will play Nacho, a young man who was raised in a Mexican monastery and now works there as the cook, and takes it upon himself to rescue the holy place from financial ruin by joining a local Lucha libre tournament and becoming one of the Luchadors. Naturally, Nacho isn't acting out of purely altruistic measures, as he wishes to help Sister Encarnacion, a beautiful Mexican nun who has recently arrived at the monastery, as well as the gaggle of young orphans who live there.

Production is headed for September.
