Jack Black will rock laughs again with director Linklater in ‘Bernie’

HollywoodNews.com: Jack Black is working with director Richard Linklater again.

The duo will team on the dark comedy “Bernie.”

Black and Linklater originally worked together on the tween pleaser “The School of Rock” which made over $131 million worldwide in 2003.

Shirley MacLaine is slotted to co-star with Black in “Bernie.” Cameras are set to roll in October.

The Hollywood Reporter, which had the story, describes:

“Bernie” is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas and follows a Renaissance man-community leader-mortician Bernie (Black) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (MacLaine). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive.

Black’s next film is the 3D adventure comedy “Gulliver’s Travels” from Fox. The film bows on December 22.

Linklater’s last film was the period piece “Me and Orson Welles” which starred Zac Efron and Claire Danes.
