At Last, Bobcat Goldthwait to Make a Kinks Musical


When Bobcat Goldthwait first announced plans to write and direct a musical based on the Kinks' 1976 album, Schoolboys in Disgrace, it sounded too crazy to actually happen. But it will! Ray Davies is executive producing and the film will shoot in the U.K. Says Goldthwait: "It's the story that any kid who has felt that they are not being treated fairly can relate to, all set to some of the greatest rock songs you'll ever hear. It's the genesis story of a super villain 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." Suck it, Glee. [HR]
