School Of Rock
While Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" continues to do strong box office, becoming the third highest grossing IFC Films movie ever, the film has a long way to go to reach the financial heights of "School Of Rock." The director's 2003 comedy starring Jack Black was a surprise hit, earning over $80 million at the U.S. box office, prompting discussion of a sequel. While that project never came to pass, last year it was reported that Andrew Lloyd Webber was considering bringing the concept of a down-and-out rocker impersonating a substitute teacher to the Great White Way. In the meantime, the further adventures of Dewey Finn are set to take place on the small screen.

Ever since Richard Linklater's "School Of Rock" became a surprise smash hit a decade ago (has it been that long?), there has been talk of a sequel that seems unlikely to ever happen. "...we were unable to crack the code and get to a place where everybody was happy and everyone was ready to go," Jack Black told us at SXSW in 2012 about a potential followup. "So we just, I don’t know – I haven’t given up, and I’m hoping that we can find it." However, there will be a way for you to rock out with one of the best fictional bands the movies has produced.
