Former POLICE ACADEMY star BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT is turning THE KINKS’ SCHOOLBOYS IN DISGRACE album into a new movie.
The madcap star, who directed Robin Williams’ dark comedy Dad of the Year, has written a script inspired by the British band’s 1976 album - which he lists among his favourites.
The Kinks’ Ray Davies will executive produce the film project.
No cast details have been released, but the stars will have to be able to sing - they’ll re-record the album songs for the soundtrack.
Goldthwait tells The Hollywood Reporter, “Schoolboys in Disgrace is a story that any kid who has felt that they are not being treated fairly can relate to, all set to some of the greatest rock songs you’ll ever hear.”
