"School of Rock 2: America Rocks" might never see the big screen after all. Reporting on the matter, First Showing claimed that "The School of Rock" director Richard Linklater has confessed on the slim possibility of the sequel to be happening.

At the "Me and Orson Welles" world premiere in 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, the Academy Award-nominated director further hinted that the words of him being attached to the sequel are most likely to be a false one since his involvement has yet to be confirmed. In fact, he revealed that he had been contacted by the studio about the plan for sequel only once and wasn't sure whether he would take the project.

Earlier, it has been reported that "America Rocks" is scripted by the original writer Mike White. This time, the flick will follow Dewey Finn, originally starred by Jack Black, once again as he leads a group of summer school students on a cross-country field trip which will be filled with a deeper understanding of the history of rock 'n' roll and exploration on the roots of blues, rap, country and other musical genres. The Paramount Pictures film is slated for 2010 release.

i have seen the original over at least 1,000 times, no joke, and i will absoultely have a tear fest if they dont make a sequel, i fell in love with this movie, the writer, director, all of the kids, and most importantly jack black wen i watched the original for the first time, it is my absolute favorite movie, and i will be beyond upset or "unhappy" if they dont make a sequel. i stood up for the original and jack black waay to many times for there not to be a sequel. so there REALLY needs to be a sequel...

i think a sequel could never be as good as the original; think back to the various stinky Rocky sequels.

A sequel must continue or I shant be happy either. This movie was genius. Jack Black was cast perfectly, as well as the kids charaters. Please let the sequel go on--I think it would do really well at the box office, you might be surprised.
