Jack White has just issued his Rome collaboration with Danger Mouse and Daniel Luppi, but he’s already moved on to his next project. The unusual task White is discussing is a soundtrack to a film version of the Kinks’ 1974 concept album Schoolboys in Disgrace, which actor Bobcat Goldthwait is working on. Kinks mainman Ray Davies is on board as an executive producer of the project, and White would be in charge or reworking songs from the original album. "It's the genesis story of a supervillain set to music,” said Goldthwait of the movie. “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." So there you have it: Jack White and Bobcat Goldthwait are about to save us from the scourge of High School Musical.
