Jack Black of Tenacious D announced a follow up to The Pick of Destiny
myAJC reports that Jack Black announced a sequel to 2006’s The Pick of Destiny will be arriving this October. While performing at the Shaky Knees Music Festival yesterday (May 6), Jack Black briefly informed the crowd about the follow-up to the film.
“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,” Black said during the set.
This news comes as a surprise to many, especially given the time limit to the sequel’s release. However, we are sure to get more information leading up to the movie’s October release.
When The Pick of Destiny was first released in 2006, it was a box office bomb. At the time of release, it grossed $14 million of its $20 million budget. However, over the past decade, the film has acquired a cult following that has driven the film to make some money via DVD sales. According to The Numbers, The Pick of Destiny has made over $10 million in DVD sales.
Tenacious D’s album from the film is still very popular with fans. Tenacious D is currently in the process of completing their next album titled “Post-Apocalypto.” Jack Black revealed last December to Conan O’Brien that the album would be a rock opera. Whether this album will tie into The Pick of Destiny follow-up remains to be determined.
