TENACIOUS D ANNOUNCE SEQUEL TO ‘THE PICK OF DESTINY’
The Wait is OVER! And it only took 12 YEARS! Now the news you’ve imagined hearing in countless stoner fantasies has come true; Tenacious D will create a sequel to their 2006 cult classic, The Pick of Destiny.
During the band’s performance at Shaky Knees Music Festival on Sunday, Jack Black announced that a sequel movie will be released in October. “I don’t know where you’ll be able to see it, but we have decided that it’s happening and it’s coming out,” Black told the crowd and the crowd went NUTS!
Though The Pick of Destiny was a box office bomb, only taking in $14 million of its $20 million budget, the film has aged very well over the past 12 years. According to The Numbers, The Pick of Destiny has surpassed $10 million in DVD sales, allowing the movie to turn a small profit. Music from the film soundtrack has also remained a favorite among fans, thanks in part to cameos from Ronnie James Dio, Dave Grohl and Meat Loaf.
