Jack White and Bobcat Goldthwait For Kinks Musical?

(Gibson) Former White Stripe Jack White is in talks to provide music for comedian Bobcat Goldthwait's musical based on The Kinks' 1976 concept album, Schoolboys in Disgrace.

Screen Daily reports that Kinks legend Ray Davies has been appointed as an executive director of the film, which is being produced by Howard Gertler and Tim Perell of Warp Films, an offshoot of Warp Records that has worked on Submarine and Four Lions and is distributing new Australian film Snowtown. The article confirmed the courting of White to "re-record the music," and said the film could be a German co-production.

Schoolboys in Disgrace is a prequel of sorts to the Kinks' 1973-74 rock opera, Preservation: Acts 1 & 2. According to the album's liner notes, Schoolboys in Disgrace is the story of "a naughty little schoolboy" who is turned into a hard and bitter character after a public punishment in front of the whole school for getting himself into "very serious trouble with a naughty schoolgirl." That naughty boy grows up to be Mr. Flash, the villain from Preservation. more on this story
