Tenacious D Prepare For 'The Pick of Destiny'

Published: 2005-05-12
Delight of all delightsóit appears that Tenacious D will not only release a movie this summer, but will also record some brand new tunes for the flick as well. Fans of Jack Black's comedic rock twosome can expect all of Tenacious D's old tricks and much more in Tenacious D In The Pick of Destiny.

Directed by Liam Lynch, the feature film Pick of Destiny is being handled by Ben Stiller's production companies, Red Hour Films and Working Title Films. Of course actor-musicians Jack Black and Kyle Gass will feature in the movie that tells their "story," but rumour has it that alongside the pair, Will Ferrell, Meat Loaf, and Black Sabbath's Ronnie James Dio will also appear.

Just like A Hard Day's Night, and, uh, Spice World, Pick of Destiny will come complete with a companion soundtrack. The album, which will be Tenacious D's first since the band's 2001 self-titled debut, is being produced by John King of Dust Brothers fame.

According to the band's website (www.tenaciousd.com), there will be "a few special guests" on the album, but exactly who is anyone's guess. Black has a seemingly never-ending supply of famously talented friends, from Dave Grohl (who appeared in the "Tribute" video as a guitar-toting demon) to the aforementioned Ben Stiller.
