School of Rock heading to Broadway

Jack Black's movie The School Of Rock is getting the musical treatment.

The musical version of the 2003 comedy film is due to open on Broadway in December.

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater will write new music to be added to some songs featured in the movie.

The story - which followed a rock singer and guitarist who poses as a substitute teacher at a prep school - is to be adapted by Julian Fellowes, and it will be directed by Laurence Connor.

Casting for the show will begin in January.
