10 months ago, CHUD’s Devin Faraci reported on Bobcat Goldthwait’s plans to turn The Kinks’ album Schoolboys In Disgrace into a musical. Apparently it wasn’t just wishful thinking on the part of Mr. Goldthwait either as THR reports today that the team behind Last Chance Harvey and Goldthwait’s World’s Greatest Dad will be producing and The Kinks’ own Ray Davies will be an executive producer.
The film will follow the album’s loose story (it’s really more a series of vignettes) of a schoolyard bad boy who is humiliated by the headmaster and grows up to be an evil super villain named Mr. Flash. The album’s songs will be re-recorded by the film’s cast.
