Like Jack Black? Itching for a follow-up to the 2006 movie, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny?

Well, you should be pleased with the following news: Jack Black has teased the arrival of a sequel.

This weekend, Black and Tenacious D co-founder, Kyle Gass appeared at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta to perform some of their songs. According to Empire, during their set Black began to mention the arrival of another Tenacious D movie.

He said: “I don’t know where you’ll be able to see it, but we have decided that it’s happening and it’s coming out.”

Although Black didn’t offer up any details on story or the release platform (cinema/DVD/streaming etc), he did say the sequel would make its debut in October.


The original Tenacious D movie was directed by Liam Lynch and starred Jack Black, Kyle Gass, Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, John C. Reilly, Meatloaf, Amy Adams, Amy Poehler and Dave Grohl as Satan. Although the film was not a huge hit at the box office (it bombed), it did pick up a following on DVD.

And if you’ve got this far in this news story and you have no idea who or what Tenacious D are, here’s a music video to help fill in the blanks.

Now if only Black would announce another School of Rock movie…
