Rejoice, everybody who thought Jack Black didn’t belong in King Kong, because he’s just making one wacky comedy after another!
Reuters reports that Black will star in Be Kind Rewind as a guy whose brain is, um, magnetized. After he destroys every tape in his buddy’s video store, they have to remake the lost films. The movies they must recreate include: The Lion King, Rush Hour, Back to the Future and Robocop.
Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) will direct, guaranteeing some serious surreal fun. A two-month shoot is planned for September, with a budget under $20 million.
You can catch Black this summer in Nacho Libre, in which he plays a priest who moonlights as a wrestler. Yup.
