The presence of Jack Black (School Of rock) and the prominence of the letter D might, at a casual glance, may lead to you to expect a reteaming with Kyle Gass and a follow-up to Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny (2006). The D Train is about a reunion of the school variety, however, with Black tenaciously trying to secure James Marsden's (Walk Of Shame) involvement.
Yes Man (2008) writers Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel have stepped up to direct this one, which finds Black chairing the committee of a middle American high school's reunion. Desperate for the acceptance and acclaim he never got in his youth, our hero sees his chance to shine by convincing the guy voted most popular (Marsden) to attend.
Trouble is, the one-time hotshot is now a failed actor primarily working in adverts who has no real desire to parade around his old school. So Black's character heads to Los Angeles to try to convince him...
Jeffrey Tambor (The Hangover), Kathryn Hahn (The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty) and Mike White (School Of Rock) are among the rest of the cast, and The D Train pulls into US cinemas on 8 May. There is no set UK release date as yet.
