Jack Black's band make big screen debut

Tenacious D's film is nearly with us

Jack Black's band make big screen debut
Jack Black’s band Tenacious D are finally set to hit the big screen.

The Ben Stiller-produced ‘The Pick Of Destiny’ tells the quest of Tenacious D (Black and Kyle Glass) to become the greatest band ever. All they have to do is journey across time and space in search of a magical pick that will be their key to superstardom.

"It's definitely the funniest movie on paper that I've ever read,” Kyle Gass immodestly told [url=http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1000721156 ]Billboard[/url]. “It starts off as kind of how the D was formed. It goes into a quest for 'the pick,' a magical pick that will supposedly help us rock like the rock gods we so admire. It's a zillion laughs."

Meat Loaf guest stars in the movie as Jack Black’s dad.

The film is released on November 17.
