Comedian-turned-filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait (“World’s Greatest Dad”) has penned a script and will direct a film based on the 1975 album “Schoolboys in Disgrace” by The Kinks says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows a troublesome schoolboy and his posse who are humiliated by the headmaster and vow to fight back against “the Establishment.” He later becomes a supervillain named Mr. Flash.
Goldthwait describes it as “a realistic high school musical for all the kids who hate sugary, sweet, unrealistic high school musicals.” The original songs will be re-recorded by the eventual cast members.
Howard Gertler and Tim Perell will produce with filming to take place in the UK.
