Ex-White Stripes man reportedly set for new project
Jack White is reportedly in talks to record the music for a film version of ‘Schoolboys In Disgrace’ – The Kinks‘ 1975 concept album about a naughty schoolboy.
The film is being worked on by comic actor Bobcat Goldthwait, with The Kinks man Ray Davies working as an executive producer. Screen Daily reports that White is in talks to re-record the music from the album for the new project.
The main schoolboy character on the album grows up to be a villain named Mr Flash – who features in the band’s Preservation: Acts 1 & 2 rock opera. Goldthwait said of the film: “It’s the genesis story of a supervillain set to music. It’s the story of the world’s most charming criminal and a realistic high school musical for all the kids who hate sugary, sweet, unrealistic high school musicals.”
Howard Gertler and Tim Perell of Warp Films are working as producers for it.
