Ray Davies - Jack White To Go Back To School For Kinks Movie Musical?
Ray Davies is campaigning for Jack White to create the soundtrack for the upcoming film version of The Kinks' Schoolboys In Disgrace album.
The band's 1975 concept album is being turned into a movie and Davies has confirmed the former White Stripes rocker is in talks to record the music.
Davies gushes, "He's a great technical player and would bring some great anarchy to it, which is in keeping with the script."
The Kinks frontman will serve as producer on the musical, which is being developed by former Police Academy actor Bobcat Goldthwait.
Davies adds, "(Goldthwait has) written a great script, we've got the money to do it but he's got another movie to do and then he's thinking about doing Schoolboys later this year or early next year. Bobcat's got a really good vision of what he wants. Once the script's been approved, I never interfere with a director and what they want."
